Barry & Monique Blais Provide Sound 
Tips On Fire Safety On 
Behalf of Reliable Security


On behalf of Reliable Security, Barry Blais, owner; his wife, Monique, Office Manager; and their loyal companion, 'Buster'  want to wish all of our readers a very happy, and safe holiday. In order to remind everyone about the need to remain cautious at all times during this festive season, they would like to provide you with the following Holiday Fire Safety Tips.

They would also like to point out that to many adults, the following rules will seem pretty basic and common sense approaches. However, many young children are not always aware of these rules, nor do they fully realize the consequences of carelessness. Finally, if you make sure that your children fully understand how important it is to follow these simple rules, they will make sure that you don't accidentally forget during this busy holiday season. They will remind YOU if you happen to get careless.
