Summer Safety Tips

Bike Safety Tips

  • Obey the rules of the road.
  • Always wear a helmet.
  • Wear bright-colored or reflective clothing while riding.
  • Always ride with traffic – never against it.
  • Parents should be aware of where their children are riding to.
  • Always keep bicycles locked up.

Vacation Watch

  • When leaving town on vacation, consider having police officers periodically check your home or business. Learn more about Residential and Business Security Checks.     
  • Have someone pick up your mail and newspapers.
  • Leave a lamp on a timer.
  • Always lock your home, garage, or office.

General Safety

  • Do not leave valuables in your car.
  • If you must leave items in your car, put the items in the trunk.
  • When driving, always lock your doors.
  • When transporting small children, use rear door child safety locks. (Your owner’s manual will give you the specifics.)
  • Always let loved ones know where you’re going and how to reach you. It could be as simple as a note on the refrigerator, or leaving a message on the answering machine.

Have a safe summer. It is our honor to “Protect and to Serve” you.
