Halloween is a fun, exciting holiday for kids (and adults too!), but it’s also a time to exercise caution and remain aware of possible safety hazards. Below are some quick tips to help make this Halloween a safe and happy holiday for you and your trick-or-treaters:
Make sure that your child has a pre-programmed cell phone with him/her prior to going out on Halloween night, and that all important numbers are programmed in and ready for use.
The witching hour is almost upon us. It’s time to prepare your lawn to welcome all of the little ghouls and goblins from around the neighborhood. These aged tombstones create a spooky cemetery and sets the tone for a wonderful celebration from beyond the graves.
Mound earth to look like newly dug graves and set out a few of these tombstones for a deathly welcome. The tombstones can be carefully constructed out of polystyrene insulation. To ensure an easy cleanup, pile the dirt from the “fresh graves” onto a dark or clear plastic drop cloth.
Anybody who shaves knows that a dull cutting tool is more likely to do damage than a sharp one. Same goes for woodworking chisels. You’ve got to get those chisels sharp if you want to them to work well, and be safe to use.
It might surprise you to learn that brand new chisels aren’t ready to go to work. Most chisels are ground, not honed, by the manufacturer. Grinding is, well, grinding. A shaping process. honing is what it takes to get the chisel REALLY sharp so it cuts effectively. The grinding marks near the tip of the chisel in the picture tell me this one needs some work. Our goal is to remove the marks left behind by the grinder.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), carbon monoxide poisoning causes more than 500 deaths and 20,000 emergency department visits in the U.S. annually. Carbon monoxide is often called the “silent killer” because it is odorless, tasteless and undetectable by humans.
The use of carbon monoxide alarms could potentially prevent many of these deaths. Please take some time to learn how to prevent CO poisoning in your family
Did you know that having a working smoke alarms cuts the risk of you or a member of your family dying in a home fire by half?
I know that’s a bit of a strong way to start a Monday morning, but it’s very true! October is Fire Safety Month and while I have been preparing for several fire safety posts, I have been learning some facts that are very disturbing.
For instance, nine out of ten homes have smoke alarms installed. That’s great right? But millions of those installed smoke alarms don’t even work at all. Missing or dead batteries are the main causes of non-working smoke alarms.
