Food Safety Tips

– Refrigerate leftovers within two hours of preparation.

– Make sure to cook meat according to instructions and ensure you thaw your turkey safely.

Driving Safety Tips

– Follow the rules of the road and avoid speeding, even if it means you are a little late for the party because you’re rushing to pick up the last minutes gifts.

– If you are travelling during the holidays, be well rested for a long drive and plan the trip so that you share driving responsibilities to avoid fatigue.

– Limit distractions and don’t use your mobile device while driving. 

– Plan ahead to guarantee that you have a safe ride home from holiday parties so that you are not intoxicated behind the wheel. Designate a driver or use cab services to ensure road safety for everyone. 

Have a safe and happy holiday season with your family and friends!
