 Here are Tips to Assure Your Holiday Season is Safe

Traveling by car over the holidays? Don't forget to pack an emergency supply kit for each passenger in your car, including pets. Find car kit tips here.

Did you decorate your tree over the weekend? Don't forget to check the water level and unplug the lights every night before you go to bed. Watch what happens to a tree that is not watered regularly here.

Your home is more than an investment. Take the time now to prepare for oncoming cold weather. This easy step by step guide to winterizing your home will insure you have covered all your bases to protecting your home this winter.

Not sure what gift to give a friend or relative that has everything, why not give the gift of safety? A battery powered/hand cranked NOAA weather radio that includes a cell phone charger is a great affordable gift option
