HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

 

The McKEIGHAN INSURANCE AGENCY would like to wish you and your family a wonderful and safe winter holiday season.

  • When preparing a holiday meal for friends and family be sure to wash hands, utensils, sink, and anything else that has come in contact with raw poultry. Keep in mind that a stuffed bird takes longer to cook. 
  • Never defrost food at room temperature.  Thaw it in the refrigerator, in cold water or in the microwave. 
  • While doing holiday cooking, keep your knives sharp.  Most knife injuries occur due to dull blades.
  • When displaying a tree, cut off about two inches off the trunk and put the tree in a sturdy, water-holding stand. Keep the stand filled with water so the tree does not dry out quickly. 
  • Stand your tree away from fireplaces, radiators and other heat sources. Make sure the tree does not block foot traffic or doorways.  
  • When putting up holiday decorations, always use the proper step stool or ladder to reach high places. Don’t stand on chairs, desks or other furniture.   
  • When you climb, always face the ladder and grip the rungs to climb – not the side rails. Always keep three points of contact on the ladder whether two hands and one foot, or two feet and one hand. 
  • When climbing, keep your hips between the side rails and do not lean too far or overreach. Reposition the ladder closer to the work instead.  
  • Prepare your car for the winter by checking items such as the brakes, spark plugs, battery, and tires. Check your owner’s manual for the recommended interval for a tune-up.

 The above safety tips are provided by the National Safety Council.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
