Party safety

Check your fire extinguisher and its expiration date.

Check your smoke detector monthly and replace every 10 years.  Ensure it is working properly and batteries have not expired prior to the party date.

For pool parties, lay down towels, mats, or rugs to avoid slips and falls.

Know the signs or symptoms of allergic reactions.

Have the numbers for Poison Control readily available on a fridge or in a drawer in case you lose reception.
