Winter Safety

Winter takes the prize as the most wonderful time of the year. It’s also one of the busiest. We devote a lot of time to decorating our homes, writing cards and buying gifts, trimming a tree, and celebrating with family and friends.

There’s definitely a lot to juggle for during winter. Safety may not be top of mind—but it should be. Keep yourself and your family safe during the holidays with information and advice from IPC.
