Safety Tip: Sarasota County Red Light Cameras Are Up & Operational

What is a Red Light violation?

Straight Through: A red-light violation occurs when a motorist crosses over the white stop line after the traffic signal has turned red. However, motorists already in the intersection when the signal changes to red, waiting to turn for example, are not considered red-light violators.

Right Turn: A red-light violation occurs if the motorist completes the right turn in a non-careful and prudent manner.

Right Turn with 'No Turn On Red' sign: A red-light violation occurs when a motorist completes a right turn at the intersection

Tips to Prevent a Fire in Your Home

October is National Fire Safety and Prevention Month. Talk to your family about how to prevent a devastating fire in your own home.

 

 
 
 

Oct. 7-13 is Fire Prevention Week, which was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire in 1871 that killed 250 people and left more than 10,000 people homeless. In fact, the entire month of October is dedicated to National Fire Safety and Prevention, which is a perfect opportunity to talk to your family about fire safety.

Everyone knows the stop, drop, and roll, but there are many other ways to prevent a fire in your home. 

Sarasota County Emergency Services Director and Fire Chief Mike Tobias offers the following safety tips:

  • Check your smoke alarms every month to make sure they are working.
  • Replace your smoke alarm batteries when you change your clocks -- twice a year.
  • If your smoke alarm is "chirping," it is time for a new battery.
  • Smoke alarms should be on every level of your home. Make sure there is an alarm in or near every sleeping area.
  • Plan regular fire drills setting off the smoke alarm so everyone knows exactly what to do when they hear the smoke alarm sounding.
  • Have a home escape plan. Draw a floor plan or map of your home and make sure that everyone knows how to get out of the home in case of fire, and a safe place to meet outside of the home.
  • Make sure your home escape plans shows two ways out of your home in case your primary way out is blocked.
  • If there is someone in the home with special needs, make sure you have considered their needs when creating your home escape plan.

5 Ways to Help Prevent a House Fire

Aug 16, 2012

By SFLearn State Farm™ Employee

House fires are the number-one disaster threat to homeowners. Between 350,000 and 400,000 house fires occur each year in the United States. Unlike natural disasters such as tornadoes and floods, house fires are often preventable.

Observe National Fire Prevention Week this year by taking these fire-prevention steps to help keep your home and your family safe.


Avoid the sun. Flammable products such as paint thinner and lacquer can be ignited by heat sources around your home—even by sunlight streaming through a window. Always keep flammable products in a cool, dark place and in their original containers.

 

Control candles. Keep lit candles away from materials that could easily catch fire, such as curtains. Never light candles when you’re feeling drowsy—accidentally falling asleep plays a role in 12 percent of all candle fires. Opt for battery-operated candles if you want a little bedtime glow.

 

Enjoy your fireplace safely. The National Fire Protection Association recommends making sure your fireplace has a sturdy screen to prevent sparks from flying into the room. Also, allow fireplace and wood/pellet/coal stove ashes to cool before disposing in a metal container.

 

Keep your stove company. Never leave the kitchen when you have food cooking on the stove. If you must leave the kitchen for any reason, remove the pan from the heat and turn the burner off.

 

Care for your cords. Electrical cords can produce heat, so make sure they have room to “breathe.” Never trap them tightly between a piece of furniture and the wall or run them under a rug. Check the condition of cords regularly. Frayed wires or those damaged by pets are potential fire starters.
