Are You Ready For It?

The ‘Great Shakeout’ will happen tomorrow October 21st at 10 A.M.

Great ShakeOut earthquake drills are an opportunity to practice how to be safer during earthquakes: “Drop, Cover and Hold On.” ShakeOut also has been organized to encourage you, your community, your school, or your organization to update emergency plans and supplies, and to secure your space in order to prevent damage and injuries.

Several states up and down the west coast plan on participating as well as states like Colorado, Arizona and Nevada. Earthquakes are completely unexpected and being prepared and knowing how to take cover can be the difference between life and death.

Let us know how you plan on participating. Stay safe, stay prepared.

Mental Health Awareness Day

Mental Health Awareness Day is celebrated every October 10th with the purpose of raising awareness and spreading education about mental health issues. Mental health has come to focus in pandemic times like never before as people of all age groups and occupations bear the brunt of the ‘new normal’.

What was once a taboo subject was now at the forefront of tabloids, news headlines and an open discussion of those who finally sought out help with others that had similar stories.

Mental health affects 1 in every 5 adults with the most symptoms like depression, fatigue, headaches and isolation. Untreated, these symptoms can lead to more severe conditions like kidney failure, diabetes, heart problems and even cancer.

So let’s not be silent about it anymore!

For more information, you can visit www.mentalhealth.gov for resources such as centers in your area that offer assistance and group meetings. You can also call 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
 

Get In User, We’re Going Shopping

It seems that since March of 2020 we adjusted into becoming avid online users and expert shoppers. This meant having everything delivered such as our groceries, gym equipment and even office supplies right to our front door.

Although it was convenient not having to leave the house and having everything brought to you, this in return created a steep increase in package thefts. And with the holiday season approaching, more packages means more opportunity.

Here are 3 simple ways we can avoid being victims of theft:

Installing cameras and recording devices. Most smart home systems connect directly to your phone and enable 24-hour surveillance from wherever you’re located.

Ask the delivery drivers to place your packages behind porch plants, under mats or in other hidden locations.

Opt to have your items delivered to a locker where only you have access to retrieve the item.

Take the time to plan your orders and track them so that you don’t become the target of unwanted porch pirates. Happy shopping!

Rain, Rain, Go Away

In order to prepare you and your families for cooler weather, we have created a cold weather checklist!

Now that the sun sets a little sooner, take the opportunity to follow our guide below and prep your home before we lose more hours of light and endure stormy days.

  • Close off unneeded rooms and place towels or rugs over cracks under the doors to keep the warm air in and cool air out
  • If you have a fireplace, make sure you have a good supply of firewood that can keep you and your family warm in the event of power outages
  • Have flashlights and batteries available for blackouts and avoid using candles as they can become a fire hazard
  • Provide shelter for pets and the elderly
  • Bring plants inside to protect them from the elements
  • Use blackout curtains as they prevent heat loss
  • Reverse your ceiling fans to make them spin clockwise and create an updraft that pushes warm air around the room without creating a wind chill
  • Clean the gutters off of your roof as when clogged, rain and melted snow can cause leaks and damage to your home’s infrastructure
  • Maintain tree limbs and brush because wind, rain, snow and ice can cause them to break and fall

Wildfire Season: Be Prepared

The following suggestions are from readyforwildfire.org which explain the 5 steps one can take to help protect your home and family.

  • Create a defensible space around your home. Try to keep brush, trees or landscaping at least 100 feet away from the sides of your home. This allows emergency crews to safely and adequately protect the structure.
  • Make your home as fire-resistant as possible. Concrete, brick and tile are all ember resistant building materials. As far as plants go…roses, honeysuckle shrubs and cherry trees are more resistant to fire than others.
  • Put together an emergency kit now. This kit must include everything from face coverings, battery operated radios/flashlights, extra batteries, non-perishable foods that will last three days, medications, change of clothes and legal documents like your birth certificate.
  • Write an action plan. This action plan assigns each person a responsibility they’ll have if you’re being evacuated. The easiest way to ensure a fast and safe departure is to make sure all household members have a copy of the list and know their role.
  • Let family, friends or neighbors know where you plan on going. Check-in frequently and secure a safe shelter outside of the evacuation zone.
