May Checklist

  • Childproof your home.
    A study by Temple University found that 100 percent of 2- to 4-year-olds were able to remove one type of plastic outlet cap within 10 seconds. Childproof your home by installing tamper resistant receptacles. Source: ESFi
  • Be sun safe.
    With warmer weather, don’t forget to wear sunscreen with at least SPF 15, a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays. Source:
  • Storing your snowblower.
    Put a fuel stabilizer in the gas tank of your snowblower and fill with gas until nearly full. Run to get it into the engine and fuel system.
  • Tip of the month:
    Use less energy by setting your programmable thermostat as high as is comfortable in warm weather and raise the setpoint when you’re sleeping or away from home. Source:
