June is National Safety Month

  • Install smoke alarms on every level of your home and in or near all bedrooms, and test the batteries at least once a month so you'll know they are working.

  • Make sure all porches, hallways and stairwells are well lit. Use the maximum safe wattage in light fixtures. (Maximum wattage is typically posted inside light fixtures.)

  • Keep medicines and household chemicals and cleaners up high, out of the reach of children, preferably in a locked cabinet.

  • Keep a first-aid kit at home and one in the car.

  • Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun. Take frequent breaks throughout the day if you have to be in the sun. Drink plenty of water.

  • Poison Control Center 1-800-222-1222
