Tip of the day

Emergency Preparedness Tip of the Week—When planning a trip away from home, make a point to put a hold on your mail and newspapers.  Have a trusted friend or neighbor drive by the house daily to check and make sure everything looks to be in order.  Lock the deadbolts.  Make sure trusted neighbors know how to reach you in the event of a problem. 

For energy savings while away, turn off all lights.  Set the thermostat so that it is off while away.  Unplug any unused electrical devices or consider switching some of the breakers to the off setting so that no extra electricity is used.
