Fireworks + Cookouts + Flags = A Happy 4th Celebration

Independence Day means traditional fireworks celebrations, large get-togethers, and lots of American flag-waving. As you’re preparing for a fun time, please take note of the following safety and information tips:

Fireworks Safety Checklist
Before you begin any celebrations, be sure your LifeShield Fire Safety Sensor is installed properly and all smoke alarms are working properly by testing them. If you have battery-operated smoke detectors and you can’t remember the last time you changed the batteries, now would be a good time to do that.

Fire safety is always important, but it’s of particular concern around the annual Independence Day holiday. Thanks to countless amateurs handling fireworks and the large groups of people hosting celebratory cookouts, people are literally playing with fire so accidents are unfortunately not all that uncommon.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), fireworks reportedly cause more than 16,000 fires annually and thousands of bodily injuries each year – and of those, roughly 25% of emergency room firework injuries are caused by sparklers and firecrackers.

The NFPA warns people against consumer fireworks because they are too dangerous, suggesting that if you want to enjoy fireworks, attend a public show organized by experts. Let’s take a look at the NFPA’s Fireworks by the Numbers:

Enjoy the beauty of fireworks this year by Googling a local professional fireworks display in your area, and keep those kiddos close by and safe from harm!

Displaying and Caring for the American Flag

The American Flag is a proud symbol of our free country with liberty and justice for all. The 13 stripes represent the original 13 colonies and the stars represent the 50 states of the union. Even the colors have symbolic meaning: red for hardiness and valor, white for purity and innocence, and blue for vigilance, perseverance, and justice.

Consider this helpful information in accordance with the official U.S. Flag Code for the proper display of an American Flag:

How to Add or Remove User Codes on the LifeShield System

Summer is a time for dog walkers, contractors, and kids home around the clock. If you want to know who is coming and going from your home while you’re not there, issuing individual user codes to people is a great way to do this.

Thankfully, LifeShield allows for multiple user codes so you to keep track of who arms and disarms your system each time.  Following are some helpful reminders to ensure you’re doing it properly.

For additional help adding on removing users, call 877-464-7437 or email support@lifeshield.com.

Yep, Christmas in July is a Real Thing!

Christmas in July is an unofficial annual holiday that started as a means to celebrate Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere during the region’s mid-winter season.

Since it began, people in the United States have jumped on the seasonal bandwagon to have some fun with the concept. Google your local area for Christmas in July happenings, and you’re likely to find plenty of silly celebrations like “Running with the Santas” marathons, holiday-themed happy hours, and lots of sales on consumer products.

Have some fun with Christmas in July this year and give the gift of a LifeShield Home Security system to an aging parent or a child who has recently graduated from college and moving to a new apartment. They will love the peace of mind it gives – and so will you, since you can set text or email alerts to notify you when they are home safely at night. Visit LifeShieldto get started!

Happy Independence Day and, as always, stay safe and enjoy all that summer has to offer.
