Summer Prevention Tips !

Summer Prevention Tips !

The rising temperatures during the summer make it a perfect time to enjoy the outdoors with friends and family. However, you should keep these safety tips in mind so you can focus on having fun.

 

 

 Pool

Security systems must meet the requirements of the Association Française de Normalisation (AFNOR), the French standards body.

Check with your insurance company to see if you may need additional liability coverage and to cover the pool itself in the event of storms or damage.

Educate your family and your children on what to do in case of an emergency when they are swimming with their friends. Never leave small children unsupervised.

Fireworks

Read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions when using fireworks, and keep them away from children at all times.

Heat and Sun Safety

Protect your skin by applying sunscreen regularly, and by wearing a hat and sunglasses with UV protection

Insect Bites and Allergies

Use water-proof insect repellants and wear long sleeve clothing to prevent insect bites. Don’t use scented soaps, perfumes or hair sprays on your child.

Staying Hydrated

Keep in mind that exposure to the sun makes it easy to get dehydrated. Make sure to drink some water regularly, even if you aren’t thirsty.

Home protection

Make it time-consuming to break into your home.

Make it noisy to break into your home.

Make sure you have strong doors (entry and garage doors)

Keep valuables in a safe

Arrange to have mail picked up or held by the post office

Make the house look inhabited.

Install an Intruder detector system (Verisure special discount for our clients)

Have a  very good summer !

 Chimney sweeping :

Legislation requires you to have your chimney, flue pipes professionally cleaned once a year and it is recommended it is done twice a year –
once during the period when it is being used. The sweeping should ensure the soot and the deposits are cleaned fully. Good maintenance & cleaning of the chimney reduces the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning and the start of a chimney fire.

Chimney sweeping :

Legislation requires you to have your chimney, flue pipes professionally cleaned once a year and it is recommended it is done twice a year –
once during the period when it is being used. The sweeping should ensure the soot and the deposits are cleaned fully. Good maintenance & cleaning of the chimney reduces the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning and the start of a chimney fire.

Boiler / Heater maintenance :

Maintenance and control of these appliances should be carried out at least once a year.
Normally it is for the occupant to have this carried out by a professional. You should be issued with a document confirming the appliance has been inspected and functions correctly. In the case of a fire you could be held responsible especially if there were any victims. Continuer la lecture
