Fall Back This Weekend

Posted: November 3, 2018

This weekend marks the end of daylight savings time – don’t forget to turn your clocks back when you go to bed on Saturday evening.

  • Now we can look forward to earlier daylight, but with that comes dark evenings. In some places it will be dark as early as 4:30 PM. Here are some tips to stay safe when outdoors –
  • Less daylight means when we are out for our morning and evening walks and jogs we are probably doing them in the dark or low light.
  • Whenever you can, go on your walks or runs with another person.
  • Wear bright clothes to be seen, and for personal safety.
  • Wear reflective clothing.
  • Carry a flashlight or illuminated ankle or wrist wrap.
  • Walk/run against traffic, bike with traffic.
  • If  you walk or run with a dog make sure that they wear reflective gear or lights. You could also invest in a leash with an attached flashlight.
  • If you bike, make sure your bike has all of the proper reflectors or lighting so you are easily seen.
  • Carry your phone for emergencies.
  • Don’t become a statistic.
