TIPS ON HOW TO STAY SAFE IN RAINING SEASON
Tips On How To Stay Safe This Raining Season
If you want to enjoy this time of the year without facing any unfortunate incidents, here are some simple yet effective safety tips for the rainy season that you must follow.
Don’t Touch Electric Wires:
One of the safety tips for the rainy season is to stay away from electric wires, especially ones that have either fallen from heavy rain or are dangling precariously from the pole, about to fall off.
Drive Slowly And Carefully:
Road accidents are most common during the rainy season. Drivers need to practice extreme caution in this weather. Since wet tarmac can become rather slippery, we advise you to avoid speeding and tailgating (closely following the car in front of you). If the vehicle behind you is tailgating, put some distance between the two and Avoid making sudden turns.
Moreover, be wary of riding motorcycles while it is raining, as they tend to slip and fall easily on wet roads. If you drive a car, be careful of bikers around you.
Avoid Walking In The Rain:
These pools of water may seem visibly clear and clean, but they contain a host of bacteria, which can lead to several viral diseases and fungal infections. Diabetes patience is at more risk than others.
Unplug Unused Electronic Appliances:
One of the top electrical safety tips during the rainy season is to unplug electronic appliances during heavy rainfall. The reason behind this is voltage fluctuation and load shedding. Very high or low voltage can potentially damage your equipment.
Make Sure Your Windows Are Shut Properly:
Apart from making sure mosquitoes and other bugs do not invade your space during the rainy season, you also need to make sure your windows are closed to avoid water from entering your home during heavy rainfall. If the water is still coming through your windows, call a carpenter and get the problem fixed as soon as possible, or the raindrop might ruin your wall paint and flooring. Not only that, but water can also enter your wiring, which can be disastrous.
Keep Umbrella And Raincoat Handy.
It is good to keep an umbrella on hand during the rainy season because it will also help protect your valuable items such as your mobile phone, wallet, and cards from getting wet during the downpour. If carrying an umbrella appears to be a hassle, buy a raincoat.
