NOVEMBER 2019 SAFETY TIPS

These tips are intended for residents, visitors and property owners of Brookfield, VT but may apply to neighboring towns as well.

November is already upon us with early snow, ice and wind.

  • It is time to drive slower on snow and ice-covered roadways.
  • Have your snow tires installed.
  • Clean all the snow and ice off your vehicles, it’s the law.
  • Also dress for the weather, in case of vehicle breakdowns.
  • When at home and burning wood, make sure your chimney has been cleaned.
  • Keep all combustible materials a safe distance from your wood stove or fireplace.
  • Use caution when disposing of ashes, they can look like they are out, but reignite when exposed to air. Use a metal ash container with an airtight cover.
  • With the holidays upon us, be careful with candles and open flames.
  • When you turned back the clocks, did you change the batteries in your smoke and Carbon Monoxide detectors that require them?

Enjoy your thanksgiving!!!
