za12Holiday Safety Tips

We are truly thankful for all our clients who have trusted us with their personal or business insurance. We know you have many choices and we will work hard every day to provide you with the best possible combination of insurance coverage, pricing and service.

The Thanksgiving Holiday is filled with family, friends, shopping, eating and drinking. All these can be great but can also lead to increased chance of accident and injuries. During this season of thanks, we offer a few tips to keep you safe.

Shopping Safety Tips

Always be aware of your surroundings.

Put your shopping bags in your trunk.

NEVER leave car doors unlocked or windows open.

ALWAYS park in lighted areas. Do NOT park in remote areas.

Keep receipts in your wallet or purse.

Avoid carrying large amounts of cash.

If you make expensive purchases like jewelry or guns, call our office as we may need to add these to your policy.

Driving Safety

Never drink and drive.

Plan your route in advance and check traffic reports and weather conditions before you leave.

Be prepared for emergencies – keep a blanket, boots, an extra pair of gloves and a flashlight in the trunk of your car.

Long trips are tiring and fatigue can be deadly when you’re driving. Driver fatigue was a factor in 65 road deaths and nearly 1200 injuries last year. Plan to get enough rest beforehand so that you drive fresh.

Have roadside assistance contact information on hand, in case an incident occurs on the road.

Quick Turkey Tip

Safely cooking a turkey starts with correctly defrosting it; place your bird on a tray or pan to catch any juices and keep it refrigerated until it’s ready to cook.

We hope you have a safe and happy holiday
