Seasonal Safety Tips

Posted on November 30th, 2016 | Posted in News

 
 

 
 

Some of us have already started Holiday shopping, but here are a few tips to keep you safe out there!

Online Shopping

It’s wise to do some research on a website before you purchase something and hand over your credit card information.

  • log on to the company website yourself – do not enter through an emailed link
  • check the Better Business Bureau to see if they have had any complaints about the company
  • look for a padlock icon in the upper right corner of any page asking for your credit card information to indicate it is secure

Shopping in Person

  • try not to take your eyes off your debit or credit card when someone else is handling it
  • make sure store employees only swipe your card once
  • keep watch of your personal belongings at all times – don’t leave your purse unattended
  • if you must store your purchases in your car, make sure they’re in the trunk and that your trunk opener inside your car is deactivated

Celebrating

Whether you’re a guest or a host, you need to have a plan to prevent drinking and driving. Remember that it’s not always easy to tell if someone is over the legal limit to safely drive and that time is the only thing that can sober someone up.

  • determine who the designated drivers in your group will be or have a plan to take public transit or taxis ahead of time
  • as a host, consider limiting your own drinking so you can be more aware of how much your guests are drinking
  • if you believe one of your friends is too drunk to drive, ask them for their keys and call them a cab; alternatively, you can stay with them until they are sober or offer them a spare bed for the night
  • if you are unable to stop someone who shouldn’t be driving, you will need to call the police – it may be difficult to do when it’s a friend, but the potential for serious or deadly harm to your friend and others is a very real possibility if they get behind the wheel

Decking the Halls

  • if your Christmas tree is visible from the outside, consider not placing gifts under the tree until the last minute
  • if you have pets, they may be attracted to ribbons and parcels and they could pose a choking hazard
  • once the presents have been unwrapped, consider taking boxes for things such as computers, electronics and televisions straight to recycling yourself – no need to alert a thief what new toys Santa brought you by leaving the boxes outside your home

Going Away?

If your holiday plans include travel elsewhere, you will want to take steps to protect your home and its belongings while you are away.

  • have a friend or neighbour visit your home often to check on things
  • invest in a timer for your lights
  • cancel your newspaper and arrange for your mail to be brought inside every day
  • you may be excited about your big trip, but it’s not wise to advertise your plans in social media, such as Facebook and Twitter

Fire Safety

Lastly, holiday safety tips wouldn’t be complete without some fire prevention advice.

  • If you have a fresh-cut Christmas tree, make sure to water it regularly to help it retain it’s moisture; if you purchase an artificial tree, make sure that it is fire retardant
  • be cautious on a ladder when installing and removing your Christmas lights and inspect your lights for excessive wear before you install them; if you have any doubt about the age and safety of your strand of lights, it’s probably time to get new ones – be power smart and purchase energy efficient LED lights
  • use only approved CSA and UL tested extension cords and power bars for all your electrical needs
  • keep all flammable items at least three feet from your space heaters and ensure your heaters are CSA or UL approved
  • kitchen fires are a major concern at this time of year; don’t leave pots unattended on the stove and be extremely cautious when cooking with oil
  • have and learn how to use a fire extinguisher
  • keep candles away from combustible materials and never use lighted candles on or near a Christmas tree; don’t ever leave your home or go to bed with candles burning
  • working smoke alarms save lives; press the test button on your smoke alarm once a month to ensure it is working and don’t forget to change the battery once a year – if your smoke alarm is more than ten years old, it’s time to change it
  • remember, smoke from a fire can hurt or kill you long before the flames ever get near you, so make a point of sleeping with your bedroom door closed

AGRICULTURAL FALL FARMING SEASON

Posted on October 9th, 2015 | Posted in News

AGRICULTURAL FALL FARMING SEASON

The agricultural harvesting season is upon us!  The Lambton Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is urging all motorists to be aware of and be courteous to our community farming members.

This is the time of year when we encounter an increase in the number of farm vehicles on our roadways.  Farmers are required to comply with regulations related to proper lighting, means of attachment, and use of slow moving vehicle signs. As the motoring public we need to slow down, use caution and have patience with the farm tractors and the implements of husbandry.  Regardless of who has the lawful “right of way”; a passenger car vs a farming tractor and a load of wagons will result is disaster!

Here are some tips to keep in mind when sharing the roadway with farm equipment:

  • Recognize slow moving vehicles by the orange triangle and use caution.
  • Realize that farm vehicles travel between 30-40 km/h.  Slow down when you see farm equipment on the road and be prepared to stop.
  • Watch for left turns.  Not all farm vehicles have turn signals – watch for farmer’s signalling a turn using the same hand signals as a bicycle rider.
  • Be aware that farmers with long or broad equipment sometimes need to make a wide turn.  If a tractor swings right, be careful, it may be starting a left turn.
  • The farmer may be unable to pull off of the road due to equipment weight or shoulder issues.  If you must pass, wait for the safest opportunity to do so.
  • Leave a wide berth when passing.  Some farm equipment takes up more than one lane and some farming equipment may have structural parts protruding that can be hard to see.
  • When finished passing, don’t stop or slow down in front of the farm vehicle because large equipment can’t brake as quickly as a car.

Please be courteous with farm vehicle operators and treat them as you would any other vehicle on the roadway.

Last Long-Weekend of the Summer

Posted on September 4th, 2015 | Posted in Crimes of the WeekNews

In Sarnia during this last long-weekend of the summer we have First Friday today, a Labour Day parade on Monday and the Festival of Good Things in between. Should be a good weekend for everyone with plenty to do.

If you are driving this long-weekend then please focus on being the driver: No booze. No distractions. Ease up on the accelerator. Make sure everyone is properly seat-belted. Do what you can to avoid being part of the problem on the roadways and make sure you are not part of the negative long-weekend statistics that we often read about.

As usual, if you see anything happening that requires an emergency response from Police, Fire, or Paramedics then please use 911 to help out. If you know something about a crime that has been committed, please use the anonymity of Sarnia Lambton Crime Stoppers and give us a call at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or use WebTip or Mobile Tip (check out our web site “Tip Submit” tab)

Please don’t leave tip information on our Twitter account @lambtoncrime and please don’t leave tip information on our FaceBook account Sarnia Lambton Crime Stoppers.

Have a great loooooong weekend 🙂
