As daylight savings time begins and you spring forward, we want to ensure you do so safely. Please take a moment to review the spring safety tips that you can do to make sure you have a safe and happy home! Home Security Check Make sure all your door locks are working and install deadbolts on all doors with outside access. Install motion sensitive outdoor lights. These are not only great for your safety but also deters criminals from breaking in. Trim your shrubs around the home where burglars can hide when breaking into your home. All shrubs should be cut back below the window. Remember to go through old files and shred unnecessary paperwork and file away important documents in a fireproof safe. If it’s affordable for you, no more putting this one-off, if you don’t have a security system this is the single most important thing you can do to secure your house from fire, flooding and crime. Smoke Alarms Three out of every five deaths caused by home fires are a result of the homeowner not having a smoke alarm or having one that doesn’t work according to the National Fire Protection Association. Make sure you test your smoke alarms every month and replace the battery at least once a year. If the alarm makes a “chirping” sound, then replace the battery immediately. You can contact the local fire department with assistance if you need it. Carbon Monoxide Detectors Anything that burns fuel can potentially become a source of carbon monoxide, which is an invisible, odorless gas that can kill. CO alarms should be installed in a central location outside each bedroom and on every level of your home. The safety tips for CO detectors mirror those of smoke alarms: change the batteries and test the alarms regularly. Also, make sure that vents for your gas appliances (fireplace, dryer, stove, furnace) are free and clear of snow or debris. Family Emergency Plan The National Safety Council recommends every family have an emergency plan in place in the event of a natural disaster or other catastrophic event. Spring is a great time to review that plan with your family members. Have a home and car emergency kit. FEMA says an emergency kit should include one gallon of water per day for each person, at least a three day supply of food, flashlight, batteries, an updated first aid kit, filter mask, plastic sheeting and duct tape, and medicines. You can visit the website www.fema.com for a more detailed list. Your emergency plan should also include a communication plan to outline how your family members will contact one another and where to meet if it’s safe to go outside, if it’s not safe to go outside due to contaminated air or other factors, you need to consider creating a shelter in place plan that is indoors; FEMA recommends sealing windows, doors, and air vents with plastic sheeting if this occurs. You also need to think of a getaway plan that includes various routes and destinations in different directions and make sure each family members knows which route they are to take and everyone should know where each individual will be once they reach their destination. Get Rid of Unwanted Medicines Take unwanted or expired medicines to a prescription drop box or drug take back event that may be occurring near you. There is a drug take back box located in the lobby of the Lexington Police Department for the public’s convenience where you can safely drop your unwanted or expired medicine safely to be destroyed. There will also be a drug take back event in Lexington with drop boxes set up outside Walgreens and Family Pharmacy on April 28th, 2018 with personnel from the police department there to assist you. Getting the Urge to Clean? With the warm weather comes a desire to shine and polish your home. But when warning labels are ignored or chemicals fall into the wrong hand, disaster can strike! Learn what you can do to keep your family safe around poisons that are used in your home. Window Safety With warmer temperatures arriving, it’s important to practice window safety – especially in homes where there are young children. Make sure all the locks on your windows work properly and the screens on the outside of them are in place and secured properly.

Lexington Police have received several calls regarding a phone solicitation from an organization claiming to represent a national law enforcement officers. The caller attempts to obtain credit card information from the victim. This is another scam attempt.
