June Monthly Checklist

By Callie Leahy 6.1.15

Each month, Texas Farm Bureau Insurance brings you a monthly checklist to help keep your family, household, and insurance needs in order and top of mind, including everything from cleaning and organizing to “don’t forgets” and holiday info.

June 2015 Monthly Checklist:

1. Take advantage of your relaxed summer schedule and update/review your family emergency evacuation plan including how to get out of the house and safe places to go in the event of an emergency.
2. The first week of June is National Fishing and Boating Week. Head out to one of these Texas fishing hot spots for a fun day on the water.
3. Summer bug bites and boo-boos are just around the corner. Do a quick inventory of your first-aid kit and replace outdated medications and ointments.
4. Turn your ceiling fans to their summer setting. Flip the switch on the motor of your ceiling fan for a counterclockwise rotation to bring hot air up to the ceiling, not down toward guests.
5. Retired your fireplace for the year? Get your hearth and chimney cleaned and inspected to keep hiding summer critters out of your home.
6. Wildfires safety starts with creating a 30-foot safety zone around your home. Clear any dry plants, vines, or brush away from your home and move grills, trash cans, and play structures at least 3 to 10 feet away.
7. June 28 is National Insurance Awareness Day. Give your Texas Farm Bureau Insurance Agent a call to schedule a 360 Review® this month!
8. The Texas heat can take garbage smells from 0 to 100 quickly. Combat the stench with a thorough garbage can scrub down.
9. Sprinkle some ground chalk around your garden, kids play area, and pet bowls to keep pesky ants from ruining summertime play.
10. Member benefit of the month: Discount car rentals. Before you hit the road for your road trip or vacation, use the Texas Farm Bureau member benefits page to secure your rental car and savings. Discounts are offered on popular rental companies such as Hertz, Avis, Enterprise, Alamo, and National Car Rental.
