Consider Gifts of Safety

Consider Gifts of Safety If buying for someone on you holiday list has you stumped, the Vineland Office of Emergency Management suggests gifts of safety to protect friends and loved ones throughout the year. Natural disasters may wreak havoc with many families this year. The following ideas may provide the extra measure of safety to reduce property loss and save lives.

Every home needs one or more smoke detectors on each floor, a carbon monoxide detector, a five-pound A-B-C type fire extinguisher and a foldable ladder to evacuate the second floor. Flashlights, battery powered radios and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries can be used throughout the year, but are especially helpful during an emergency or power outage.

Consider giving a sturdy plastic tub filled with bottled water, canned goods and non-perishable snacks, a camp or canned heat stove. Winter car kits containing emergency flares, shovel, windshield scraper, battery-powered radio, flashlight, snacks, tire chains and distress flag may help someone get home safely during adverse weather. First aid kits can always come in handy.

The Vineland Office of Emergency Management extends best wishes for a happy and safe holiday season. Additional winter preparation and safety tips are available by www.fema.gov or www.ready.gov. Vineland residents may also call 856-691-4540.
