With stats like that, it’s a no brainer to say that being out in a storm where lightning is prevalent, it is a gamble with your life.

Lead Poisoning... A Reminder

Lead Poisoning... A Reminder

Lead poisoning, whether in small or substantial amounts, can both severely affect mental and physical development in children as well as in adults. However, children below the age of 6 years old are known to be more susceptible to encountering a lead based material, or object and becoming contaminated. This fact is supported by the idea of younger children who normally tend to put their hands, or items in their mouth. Lead based paint has been seen to be used when making children’s toys, painting older homes before the ban of lead based paint in 1978, or even from the soil in which we plant our fruits and vegetables to be eaten from. Although to this day many of these products have been recalled, and steps have been taken to cease further production of these chemicals, we are still finding lead in our water system from which we bathe in, drink from, wash our hands, rinse our fruits and vegetables, water our plants, and so on.

TURN and TEST & House Fire Safety Tips

It's that unfortunate time of year that most of us need to remember to turn our clocks back one hour (and probably lose an hour of sleep because of it). The American Red Cross also suggests that this is a great opportunity to remember to also check your smoke alarms: TURN your clock back and TEST your fire alarms. Most smoke alarms can be tested by simply pushing a test button—definitely worth the time and effort when working fire alarms cut the risk of death in a house fire by half!

While you're at it, you can also prepare for home fires or emergencies in other ways as well, including planning your family escape plan and preparing an emergency/burn first aid kit.
