Whether you’re enjoying a three-day weekend trip away or celebrating this Labor Day Weekend at home, remember to be safe while you’re having fun.
If you’re traveling, remember to carry an emergency supply kit in your car’s trunk and let someone know your travel route and estimated time of arrival. Buckle up and observe
speed limits — and don’t drink and drive.
And, here are some safety tips for your backyard grilling: keep the grill away from the house, tree branches or anything that could catch fire. Keep children and pets away from
the hot grill and NEVER add charcoal starter fluid when the coals have already been ignited.
