Brookstone Builders, Inc- Storm prep tips

Winter has already left its mark behind but the one that is coming in is set to give us a White Christmas for sure.  Plan for it now to help you get through it safer and healthier. There are a few areas you want to think about, your home or business, vehicle, and family.

I found something  from the National Safety Council,

  • Home fires are more prevalent in the winter months than any other season. Cooking is the leading cause of all winter residential building fires. Other winter fire hazards include space heaters, fireplaces and candles.
  • The cold weather increases your chances of getting frostbite or hypothermia. Between  the years of 1999-2004, an average of 647 people died each year from hypothermia.
  • In 2009, over 16,000 Americans were treated for head injuries in emergency rooms because of playing winter sports (skiing, sledding, snowboarding, snowmobiling). 
  • Fatal crashes were 14% more likely to happen on the first snowy day of the season than on days following. It takes drivers a few days to regain their sense of driving in this weather. 
  • According to the CDC, most carbon monoxide poisonings happen in January; the second most in December. Carbon monoxide detectors save lives, but less than one-third of American homes have one installed.
Get your home, your car and your family ready for this winter with these safety tips.
