Time to “Fall Back” on November 1st


 
It is time to turn our clocks back an hour on November 1st, as we welcome brighter mornings and an extra hour of sleep.  Although the official time to turn the clocks back begins at 2:00am, you may avoid confusion by turning your clocks before going to sleep.

While turning your clocks back, we advise you to also change the batteries in the carbon monoxide and smoke detectors in your home. 

 Clocks will “spring forward” on Sunday, March 13, 2016.

Keep it Bright on Halloween Night


 
From the sweets, treats, costumes and fun, Halloween is an exciting time for children and parents alike.  To ensure a fun and safe Halloween night, Edison Insurance Company would like to share some “bright” Halloween safety tips.
 
  • Decorate costumes and treat bags with reflective tape. If possible, wear bright colored costumes to be visible to drivers.
  • Continue to light up your Halloween night by using flashlights and glow sticks while “trick- or- treating”.  
  • Turn on your homes outside lights to be sure visitors and “trick-or- treaters” are able to see clearly after dark.
  • Avoid a fire by lighting your jack-o-lanterns with battery-operated candles or flashlights.

Have a happy, safe, and bright Halloween.  For more Halloween safety tips, click here.

Fire Prevention Week

October 4th through 10th is Fire Prevention Week. This week, Edison Insurance Company encourages you to learn ways to protect you, your family, and your home, from a devastating house fire.

Smoke alarms are a crucial part of your home fire escape plan, and according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), functioning smoke alarms located throughout your home can cut the chances of dying or being severely injured in a home fire in half. The NFPA also reports a majority of home fire deaths occur during hours when most people are sleeping. This is why installing smoke alarms on the inside and outside of each bedroom in your home is the theme of this year’s Fire Prevention Week.

Continue to make your fire prevention week a success by following these smoke alarm safety tips below:
  • Interconnect your smoke alarms. When one sounds, they all should sound.
  • Test all the smoke alarms in your home at least once a month. Test them by pressing their test button.
  • Replace your smoke alarms every 10 years.
