Summer Safety Tips for Your Home and Vehicle

Welcome to Summer 2024!

Summer has officially arrived in Waukee and central Iowa! As we embrace the warmer weather and longer days, it’s important to ensure that our homes and vehicles are ready for the season. Jeff Johnson Insurance Agency is here to provide you with essential tips to keep your property and loved ones safe all summer long.

 Home Safety Tips for Summer

1. Check Your Air Conditioning System

As temperatures rise, your air conditioning system will be working overtime. Make sure it’s in top condition by having it serviced by a professional. Regular maintenance can prevent breakdowns and keep your home cool and comfortable.

2. Inspect and Maintain Outdoor Areas

Summer is the perfect time for barbecues and outdoor gatherings. Ensure your decks, patios, and play areas are safe. Check for any loose boards, nails, or potential hazards. Keep your grill in good condition and always supervise when in use.

3. Prepare for Storms

Summer storms can be unpredictable. Protect your home by checking your roof for any loose shingles and ensuring your gutters are clean. Having an emergency kit ready with essentials like flashlights, batteries, and first-aid supplies is also a good idea.

4. Pool Safety

If you have a pool, make sure it’s safe for everyone. Install a fence around the pool area and keep rescue equipment nearby. Always supervise children and ensure everyone knows how to swim.

Vehicle Safety Tips for Summer

1. Check Tire Pressure and Tread

Hot weather can affect your tires, so it’s important to regularly check their pressure and tread. Properly inflated tires improve fuel efficiency and reduce the risk of blowouts.

2. Service Your Vehicle

Before embarking on any summer road trips, have your vehicle serviced. Check the oil, coolant, brakes, and battery. A well-maintained vehicle is less likely to break down in the heat.

3. Keep Your Car Cool

Use sunshades to keep your car cooler and protect the interior from UV damage. Never leave children or pets in a parked car, even for a short time, as temperatures can quickly become dangerous.

4. Stay Hydrated and Prepared

Keep a supply of water in your car for long trips. It’s also a good idea to have an emergency kit that includes items like a first-aid kit, flashlight, and roadside assistance contact information.
