In this modern day and age, we are suffering different kinds of calamities and natural disasters like super typhoons, massive earthquakes, torrential floods and devastating tsunamis that claim countless of lives and leave families lamenting in deep pain and misery because of the ravaging effects of climate change and global warming. And that is the reason why we must mend the folly of our ways by lowering our carbon footprint, lessening the pollution that we poison our environment with and take preventive measures to make sure that the next generations to come will have a brighter future in their horizon and not inherit a barren and desolate wasteland.
Therefore, the onus falls on international conglomerates, ppe safety regulators in Singapore and other billion-dollar industries to initiate projects that fall on their corporate social responsibility because this is their humanitarian and philanthropic way of giving back to the community. But even average joes and normal citizens can do their part in protecting the environment and conserving our natural resources because we all need to join hands, participate in different endeavours and go green or else we run the risk of feeling the brunt of Mother Nature’s wrath and vengeance. Everybody should also keep safety on top of their list at all times and with that said, here are some tips on how to stay safe and sound at all times to keep accidents and other harmful events at bay.
- Start a Clean Up Crew
Mountains of rotting trash, refuse and garbage invite all kinds of pests and vermin like rats, cockroaches and flies that bring all sorts of infectious diseases, bacteria and viruses and that is why homeowners should take the time to clean up after themselves and make sure that their houses are immaculately pristine and spic and span. Unkempt yards, overgrown bushes and trees with wayward branches can also cause accidents especially in households with little children and pets and that is why parents should take the time to mow the lawn, trim those branches and weed the garden.
- Sound the Alarm
Aside from installing security cameras and alarm systems to stay safe from different kinds of home invaders like cat burglars, thieves and violent robbers, homeowners should also install a gas detector so that they can identify leaks and other problematic areas that can cause catastrophic explosions. They can also adopt a dog from the pound and train it in such a way that it can use its heightened and sharp senses to ward off bad guys and detect these kinds of gas leaks.
- Make New Friends and Join the Neighbourhood Watch
Aside from installing the most expensive security systems and buying state of the art gas detection equipment to make sure that their families and possessions are safe from accidents and criminals, it is also crucial for homeowners to get to know their neighbours and other people in the community. Expanding your network of friends will ensure that you have a lot of people that you can rely on in case of emergencies and this can also give people a sense of goodwill and gratification because they are important members of the community who have a positive impact on the lives of others.
