So, to make certain that we enjoy the Holidays as we expect to, without incident, let’s all remember some basics about staying safe. Shopping: Stores will be crowded and distractions abundant, So, remember the following before venturing out: When shopping with a young child, consider submitting a picture or video of your child to any number of the Public Safety and Security Apps that provide a free resource to record your child’s look and dress prior to heading out. These Apps are used by subscribed law enforcement and mall security professionals to quickly access and distribute news about your child to a number of sources. Keep your purse in front of you and make sure that all pockets are zipped or snapped. Keep your wallet securely in your front pocket to avoid pickpockets. Avoid areas of parking lots that are dark or empty, especially when traveling alone. Have your keys in hand at all times, and always be aware of your surroundings. If carrying any load, including a child, try to get into the car immediately, locking all doors before positioning bags and car seats. Decorating: A few simple tips can help avoid a holiday mishap. Never light candles near trees, curtains, or other flammable items. Make sure to place your tree away from fireplaces, heaters, or any heat-generating appliances. Turn off all lights when you go to sleep or leave the house and unplug extension cords when they are not in use... For the full article please visit:
