Norwalk, CONN (PRWEB) December 12, 2006
Knowing how to remove snow from driveways, walkways and other areas around the home can not only help make the rigors of winter a little easier; it may also provide some needed exercise. According to AP9 24 Protect Plus, a premier security program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, the Surgeon General's Report on Physical Activity and Health says that just 15 minutes of snow shoveling may account for half of the body's minimum requirement of moderate physical activity. But keep in mind that snow shoveling is not for everyone. Researchers report that an increase in heart attacks is often reported after heavy snow falls. AP9 24ProtectPlus members can take advantage of these handy tricks and tips to get through the season injury-free with limited hassle and inconvenience.

AP9 24 Protect Plus is dedicated to educating and protecting the public on ways to make daily lives easier to manage. AP9 24 Protect Plus therefore offers these helpful tips to make the winter months a little easier:
-- Know your general physical conditioning. If a heavy snowfall hits, shovel the driveway or walkway in sections. Don't over-do it. Snow shoveling can be hard on your back.
-- Drink plenty of fluids. Dehydration can strike in the cold weather too.
-- Stretch out your muscles. It can be easy to pull a muscle while snow shoveling. Stretch out, run in place, and generally warm up first.
-- Concentrate when using a snow blower. Keep a close eye on what you're doing. The snow blower is easier on the back muscles than shoveling, but it does present other safety concerns. Sharp and potentially hazardous objects could be hidden beneath the snow and may present a danger.
-- Here are some other important snow blower safety tips. The small engine that runs a snow blower is still powerful enough to cause serious injury. It produces toxic fumes and can be a potential fire hazard. Make sure the person operating the machine is aware of these risks.
In addition to these helpful home safety tips, members have access to savings on home improvement projects, financial advice, medical records storage, and other family safeguards, including emergency roadside assistance and much more through AP9 24ProtectPlus.
