New Years Eve/Day

Click Here to Add a Title

Drinking:  DON’T SET YOUR DRINK DOWN ANYWHERE!  People tend to be too trusting within their surroundings and put their drink down where anyone can get to it.  Even if you have to go to the bathroom, take it with your or give it to a close friend. While New Year’s Eve is super fun it’s also super dangerous when it comes to someone spiking your drink while it’s unattended.  If you have to leave your drink unattended for any reason, get a new one. 


Driving:  Whatever you do on New Year’s Eve, DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE! Even if you’ve had only a couple of drinks, have a designated driver (alcohol free ) to drive you around. You many think that you’re not that “buzzed up”, however you’re wrong!

Public Events:  Be aware of your surroundings at all times! This is extremely important since you may be drinking around tons of people you don’t know in a place you’ve probably never been. Never go to these types of places by yourself. This doesn’t just go for women it also goes for men! When at public events make sure you have a communication device such as cell phone or laptop just in case anything negative occurs. Be prepared!


No Fireworks or Guns:  If you are going to engage in fireworks, leave it up to the professionals. Setting off fireworks and celebratory gunfire is dangerous to those engaging in the activity, and can cause unnecessary stress to wildlife, pets, and our veterans.

Pet Safety:  Nothing frightens pet’s more than sudden loud noises. Extra attention must be given so your pets won’t run away in a panic. Scared, running pets can be hit by cars, cause accidents, and become lost...not to mention, frequently bite people.

Make sure your pet has its ID, dog license, and/or microchip and make sure the information on it is current.

  • Ask your veterinarian for tranquilizers if your animal has shown signs of extreme uneasiness in the past.
  • Keep your pets INSIDE, in a comfortable room, with comforting music playing to drowned out scary noises.

St. Patrick's Day

Click Here to Add a Title

Have a Plan:  Predetermine a safe way to get home for you and your friends. Whether you’re watching a parade or going to or hosting a party, ensure everyone in your group has a safe means of returning home if you plan to drink. Select a designated driver, arrange for a cab, plot a bus route, or figure out a nearby place you can crash for the night. It’s a good idea to keep route maps of local public transportation, as well as the numbers for taxi companies handy during the day.


Eat: Drinking on an empty stomach is a good way to end your St. Paddy’s day a lot earlier than planned. Make sure to get some nutrients in you to help absorb that alcohol.

Stay Hydrated:  Getting enough water will also help keep the party going on longer, and decrease the likelihood you’ll have a March 18th hangover.


If You Drink:  Don’t get behind the wheel. In the eyes of the law, impaired driving is drunk driving, and even if you feel fine, a breathalyzer might not concur. 


Be Extra Cautious On the Roads:  Just because you’re a safe and sober driver doesn’t mean other people are.  A large amount of traffic accidents on St. Patrick’s Day are caused by people driving under the influence.  Whether you’re driving or just crossing the street on foot, keep your awareness levels high and call in possible drunk drivers to *677

Public Events: Be aware of your surroundings at all times and never go to public events by yourself.  When at public events make sure you have a communication device such as cell phone. Be prepared!


Be Weather Alert:  Being out at a parade or another outdoor celebration during the day can easily distract you from realizing you’re getting too much sun. Children are especially at risk because they sometimes can’t vocalize being overheated or feeling burnt.  Drink plenty of water and reapply sunscreen every 30 minutes.


Out On The Water:  Ensure there are enough life jackets on board for each passenger, regardless of swimming skill.  If you’re driving the boat, ensure you haven’t consumed alcohol beforehand or during the excursion.


Cookouts: Use your grill well away from your home and deck railings, and out from under branches or overhangs. Open your gas grill before lighting and periodically remove grease or fat buildup in trays below your gas or propane grill so it cannot be ignited. Declare a three-foot "kid and pet-free zone" around the grill to keep them safe. Avoid loose clothing that can catch fire when cooking on the grill.

 Halloween

Click Here to Add a Title

Trick Or Treat: 

  • Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colors. Since masks can sometimes obstruct a child’s vision, try non-toxic face paint and makeup whenever possible.  The TBW has both reflective trick-or-treat bags and reflective tape, available for our community at Halloween time.
  • Have kids use glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers. 
  • Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision.
  • If kids are mature enough to be out without supervision, remind them to stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups.  Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. so be especially alert for kids during those hours.
  • When selecting a costume make sure it is the right size to prevent trips and falls.
  • Don't allow kids to eat candy that hasn't been checked by a parent.

For Trick or Treat times for our community, visit our Trick-or-Treat page.

Pet Safety:  Don't leave pets out in the yard on Halloween.

Vicious pranksters have been known to tease, injure, steal, and even kill pets on Halloween night.  Black cats and dogs are especially at risk from pranks or other cruelty-related incidents.  Many shelters do not adopt out black cats during the month of October as a safety precaution. 


Keep glow sticks away from pets.  While glow sticks can help keep people safe on Halloween night, they can add some unwanted drama to the holiday if a pet chews one open. “Thankfully, the liquid inside glow sticks is non-toxic, so it won’t actually make pets sick,” Coates says, “but it does taste awful.” Pets who get into a glow stick may drool, paw at their mouth, become agitated, and sometimes even vomit.


Keep Halloween plants such as pumpkins and corn out of reach.  While small amounts of corn and pumpkin can be fed safely to many pets, ingesting uncooked, potentially moldy Halloween pumpkins or corn displays can cause big problems. Gastrointestinal upset is a possibility whenever pets eat something they aren’t used to, and intestinal blockage can occur if large pieces are swallowed.


Make sure your pet has its ID, dog license, and/or microchip and make sure the information on it is current, just in case they get out.

Thanksgiving

Click Here to Add a Title

Driving:  Be prepared and alert of the weather while traveling this Thanksgiving.  If going longer distances, check your tires, get an oil change and have your car tuned up.  Know what construction looks like along your route and have an alternate route planned just in case of road closures.  Drive sober and wear your seatbelts.

Check out our Travel Safety and Cold Weather Safety pages for additional tips on how to stay safe while traveling this Thanksgiving.


Cooking & Fire Safety:  Never leave the stove or oven unattended.  Unattended cooking is the number one cause of home fires in the U.S.  Keep children away from stove-tops, open fires, lighters, matches, and candles.  The NFPA recommends you should keep children at least 3 feet away from the stove while in use or cooking.  Be careful of cords cluttering the kitchen.  Electric mixers and knives, coffee makers, and plate warmers can be electrical fire hazards due to the amount of electricity running through one or few outlets.  Test your smoke alarms.    Turkey Fryer Safety Tips

Pets:  A change in your pet's diet can lead to digestive issues, especially if there are harmful ingredients in the table scraps you feed them.  If you want to feed your pets some turkey as a treat, make sure it doesn't have any bones in it, and that it is cooked all the way.  Keep food covered and away from table edges to prevent your pets from gaining access to foods that may harm them.  Take your trash out right after you're done with it so that your animals don't get in to it.  Don't give your pets animal bones!  They are hollow and break and splinter easily.  Because they are so easily broken, dogs usually won't chew them thoroughly. The results are sharp pieces that can choke the dog, block or tear the intestines.

Keep your pet calm and unstressed while people are visiting. Many houses are filled with running children, the chatter of relatives, and a football game in the background. Though cheerful for people, pets can get overwhelmed from these sounds and events. To ensure that your pets have a great time too, consider giving them their own space away from people, feed them out of reach of children, strangers or loud noises, and take them for a nice long walk before guests arrive to help spend their energy.


Watch out for your four-legged friends while cooking. Sometimes a little kitten under foot can create a disaster when carrying a large bowl of gravy. Keep all your pets out of the kitchen and away from the hustle and bustle. Also, watch around open oven doors.


Leave your pets at home when attending holiday parades and festivities. Floats, large balloons and crowds can be a blast for your family, but can send your dog into an anxious or even aggressive state. Leave your dog at home and let them enjoy the festivities on TV while relaxing on their favorite blanket.


Make sure your pet has its ID, dog license, and/or microchip and make sure the information on it is current, just in case they get out.

Christmas Lights: Carefully inspect holiday light strings each year and discard any with frayed cords, cracked lamp holders, or loose connections. If using a ladder when putting up lights, choose the correct ladder for the job. When hanging outdoor lights, keep electrical connectors off the ground and away from metal rain gutters. Use insulated tape or plastic clips instead of metal nails or tacks to hold them in place. Never connect more than one extension cord together; instead use a single cord that is long enough to reach the outlet without stretching, but not so long that it can get easily tangled. Always turn off holiday lights when you leave the house unattended or when going to bed.   

Christmas Tree Safety


Fire: Test your smoke alarms to make sure they work, and be sure to install smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms on every level of your home. Visit our Fire Safety Page for more fire safety tips.
