Here at Paradiso Insurance, we look to keep our clients, friends, and family protected at all costs. While most of the time this means providing you with the right insurance coverage you need for any situation, we also try to go above and beyond to help our customers and clients stay free from worry. Today, we wanted to talk about National Safety Month, and what that means to you and your family!

Week 1: Emergency Preparedness

In the first week of National Safety Month, it’s best to review emergency situations with your family. That could include an escape route/plan for an emergency fire at home or at school, what to do if a stranger talks to your children, how to handle peer pressure, and more. This also could be a time to remind your kids to buckle up in the car, or what to do if they are being bullied at school. The possibilities are endless, but this first week is to help remind us to give our families and kids safety reminders on what they can do in emergency or troublesome situations. Don’t forget to teach your kids the importance of calling 911 in an absolute emergencies, and additionally, the consequences of calling 911 if there is no real emergency at stake.

Week 2: Wellness

Week 2 is all about health and wellness. If you experience health issues, we’d highly recommend taking a look at our blog on Heart Health and You: Tips for a Positive Lifestyle. Additionally, if you’re looking for Heart Healthy Recipes, we’ve got you covered there too. Speaking of coverage, if you’re concerned about your health insurance coverage, you can learn more online today about how you can ensure you’re properly protected.

Week 3: Falls

This week National Safety Month is focused on falls in general. For your kids, that could be reminding your kids to wear elbow pads, helmets, and knee pads while they are out on their bikes, skateboards, or other activities. For the more elderly folks in our families, this could be reminding them to use their canes, and making sure that they have a reliable method to contact someone in case of an emergency.

Week 4: Driving

Last, but of course not least, week 4 in National Safety Month is all about safe driving. If you have a new teen driver hitting the road, we highly suggest reviewing this blog with them on Preparing for your New Teen Driver. Additionally, we have two more pieces on Safe Driving Tips and Road Safety Tips that are great reminders for you and the whole family to embrace. More importantly, in case of an emergency, our mobile app can help you through situations you face on the road. It’s best to have our app downloaded in advance so that you can stay free from worry if you get into an accident. To download our app today, tap or click the button below!
