February Safety Tips from CPSS

February’s Best Practices to Ensure Safety

February is not only the month of love, but it’s also a prime time to safeguard your home and loved ones. This comprehensive guide will help you make your home a secure and pleasant place to be.


Check Your Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Ensure that your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are functioning optimally by testing them regularly and replacing their batteries if they’re nearing the end of their life span.


Emergency Preparedness

Take a moment to review and update your emergency preparedness plans. Familiarize yourself with where essential tools and supplies are kept, such as the fire extinguisher and first-aid kit. Furthermore, ensure you know how to shut off the water, gas, and electricity.


Secure Your Home with Smart Locks

A secure home is a safe home. Consider upgrading your traditional locks with smart locks for enhanced security and convenience. Our systems incorporate smart locks, cameras, and motion sensors for added peace of mind.  One app helps you control them all.


Stay Cyber Safe

In today’s digital era, cybersecurity is an essential aspect of home safety. Keep your devices secure with antivirus software and strong passwords. Enable two-factor authentication where possible and be vigilant against suspicious emails and links.


Fire Safety

During February, when cozying up by the fireplace is a popular activity, fire safety becomes even more crucial. Keep flammable items at a safe distance, and never leave open flames unattended. If you use space heaters, ensure they are in good condition and positioned away from curtains, furniture, and other combustible items.


Invest in Home Security Technologies

Consider integrating smart home devices like video doorbells, smart locks, and motion-sensing lights into your home security system. These innovations enable you to monitor your home remotely and provide an additional layer of security.


Pipe Protection

Cold weather in February can lead to frozen pipes, which might burst. Prevent this by insulating exposed pipes and maintaining a comfortable temperature in your home. If you’re leaving for an extended period, consider turning off the water and draining the pipes.


Declutter Your Space

A cluttered home can be a safety hazard. Keep your home organized and tidy to reduce the risk of tripping and falling. Avoid stacking heavy items too high and be mindful of any cords or cables that could pose a tripping hazard.


February Safety First

Ensure your home is secure and safe, not just in February, but all year round. By implementing these tips, you can provide peace of mind for yourself and your loved ones and make your home a sanctuary of security and comfort.
