  • Today I would like to share information about some products that we have to be especially careful in handling and having around the home. These are important facts to keep in mind for the safety of your health and that of your children. 

    Clean laundry, safe kids

    The new single-use liquid laundry detergent packs that dissolve in the washing machine are convenient and easy to use. But if you have (or care for) small children, you need to be especially careful to keep them locked up and out of reach.

  • Chainsaws are a useful tool to help clean up our trees after this icy winter we have experienced, but they are also powerful tools, making them very dangerous.

    Improper use can cause serious and fatal injuries.  If you use a chainsaw, follow these three safety guidelines:

    • Know how to properly use a chainsaw

    • Wear personal protective equipment to protect eyes, hearing, head, legs and feet

    • Never work alone

    Buy a chainsaw you can comfortably handle and that is appropriate for the tasks you do most often.
