Wayne Alarm: Winter Pet Safety

SAFETY TIP OF THE DAY 

SPONSORED BY WAYNE ALARM AND HONEYWELL.

Winter weather means implementing safety precautions for all of us, including our pets.  Here are three ways you can keep your furry loved-ones happy throughout the cold winter season.

Take caution of the cold: If you’re going out and want to bring your pet along, make sure pets are allowed ahead of time so they won’t have to stay out in the cold.  If they aren’t allowed, leaving them at home is your best option where they can stay warm and be comfortable. If you live in a bitterly cold area, keeping them warm indoors is the best way to ensure your pets are safe from the cold and happier overall.

Keep them away from cold-weather chemicals: When taking your four-legged pals out for a walk, double check that the sidewalk is durable for a walk. Salt and other chemicals that are used to melt the snow and ice easier, can irritate the pads of their paws. Always wipe their paws with a damp towel before your pet licks them, which can cause his/her mouth to be irritated, as well.  Antifreeze (car freeze) has a sweet taste that can attract dogs. A simple lick can be poisonous to them. If antifreeze chemicals are needed, consider switching to a Propylene Glycol product, which is much safer.  Also, consider getting “booties” for your pet to wear as they walk on the snow, ice, and winter melting chemicals.

Grooming and feeding: Routinely check your pet’s water dish to make sure the water is fresh and unfrozen. Instead of metal bowls, use plastic bowls during the winter. When temperatures are low, your pet’s tongue can stick and freeze to a metal bowl. As for pet grooming, if you normally have their fur clipped or shaved, keep the length longer during the winter, giving them a permanent warm coat. You can also buy them a winter jacket.  If you bathe your pet at home, make sure he/she is 100% dry before stepping outside.  Having blankets available to your pets and keeping out any window/door drafts, can help ensure that they are not cold inside the home.

Always remember, speak out if you see a pet left in the cold by politely letting the owner know you’re concerned for their safety. If it does not go well, make sure to document what you see and have proof to boost your case. Contact your local animal control agency for help as soon as you can and let them know the details, so they can help the animal.

Wayne Alarm: Car Fire Safety


SPONSORED BY WAYNE ALARM AND HONEYWELL. 

Cars can catch fire for many reasons. Mechanical or electrical issues are the most common cause. A car can also catch fire as the result of a bad crash. If you see smoke or flames or smell burning rubber or plastic, respond immediately.

 WHAT TO DO IF YOUR CAR IS ON FIRE.
 
  • Pull over as quickly as it is safe to do so, be sure to use your signal as you make your way to a safe location off the road, such as a breakdown lane or rest stop.
  • Once you have stopped, TURN OFF the engine.
  • Get everyone out of the car.  Never return to a burning car for anything.
  • Move everyone at least 100 feet from the burning car and well away from traffic.
  • Call 9-1-1.

How to prevent a car fire:

  • Have your car serviced regularly by a professionally trained mechanic. If you spot leaks, your car is not running properly, get it checked. A well-maintained car is less likely to have a fire.
  • If you must transport gasoline, transport only a small amount in a certified gas can that is sealed. Keep a window open for ventilation.
  • Gas cans and propane cylinders should never be transported in the passenger compartment.
  • Never park a car where flammables, such as grass, are touching the catalytic converter.
  • Drive safely to avoid an accident.Know the danger signs
    • Cracked or loose wiring or electrical problems, including a fuse that blows more than once
    • Oil or uid leaks
    • Oil cap not on securely
    • Rapid changes in fuel or uid level, or enginetemperature

Most car fluids are flammable. Heat and electrical sparks plus leaking fluid are all it takes to start a car fire.

FACT:

Most crashes do NOT result in fire. In the event of any crash, call 9-1-1. If there is no sign of fire, wait for emergency assistance to help any injured individuals out of the car.

Wayne Alarm: 4th of July Fireworks Safety

SPONSORED BY WAYNE ALARM AND HONEYWELL. 

Fireworks are often used to mark special events and holidays. However, they are not safe in the hands of consumers. Fireworks cause thousands of burns and eye injuries each year. People can enjoy fireworks safely if they follow a few simple safety tips:

BE CAREFUL!

Be safe. If you want to see fireworks, go to a public show put on by experts.

Do not use consumer fireworks.

Keep a close eye on children at events where fireworks are used.

In 2011, almost 18,000 fires were caused by fireworks.

Sparklers cause 16% of fireworks injuries.

Sparklers burn 1200 degrees F.

The NFPA is opposed to consumer use of fireworks. This includes sparklers and firecrackers. Even sparklers burn hot enough to cause third-degree burns.

Information provided by NFPA through local safety and security experts at Wayne Alarm.

Wayne Alarm Safety Tip of the Day:

“Conceal all wiring – Burglars often look for wiring around the exterior of a house and can cut it to disable the security system. Keep your home security wires hidden.

Wayne Alarm Safety Tip of the Day:

“Most burglars don’t pick locks or break glass. Doing that takes too long, makes noise and risks personal injury. Instead, they simply kick in a door (even doors with a dead bolt) or pry open a window or sliding patio door. In many cases, they take advantage of a homeowner’s carelessness by climbing in through an open window or unlocked door (window screens and storm doors offer no protection). Burglars tend to shy away from homes with dogs, and homes with an alarm system.

“You never want to open a door unless you know who’s on the other side. A peephole lets you see who’s there, but entry doors don’t come with peepholes, and a lot of peepholes are so tiny that they don’t clearly show you who’s out there. Strangers can hide slightly out of view or appear so distorted that they’re hard to identify.”

Wayne Alarm Safety Tip of the Day:

“Identity theft is on the rise, and you may not even know you’ve been victimized until you apply for a loan and find out your credit has been ruined. One way to protect your identity is to shred your personal papers, including credit card offers, bank statements and bills. Shredders start at $20 at office supply stores. More-expensive models shred credit cards, CDs and multiple sheets of paper. Some even “micro-shred” documents for added security.”

Wayne Alarm Safety Tip:

“The chances of wildfires increases dramatically with the summer heat so it’s always good to review your emergency plan if you live in an area that is susceptible to these events • Design your home with safety in mind. Select noncombustible building materials and landscape your property with fire-resistant plants. • Create a safety zone by keeping areas within 100 feet of your home clear of flammable vegetation, firewood or combustible materials.  • Be fire-smart at home by regularly cleaning your roof and gutters; inspecting your chimneys twice a year; installing smoke alarms throughout your home; and teaching family members how to operate a fire extinguisher. • Have regular fire drills with your family to teach them how to escape a house fire.

Wayne Alarm Safety Tip

“Patio door locks are easy to pick. Placing a heavy duty stick in the door track will bar the door closed, but it looks crude and it’s inconvenient to remove every time you want to open the door. Fortunately, there’s a better way to get the security you need. An Auxiliary Security Lock fastens along the bottom of the door and has a bolt that fits into a grommet to hold the door secure. ”
