You might not be exactly sure what safety plans have to do with your garage, but luckily that is what we are here to explain to you! We are referring to safety plans in regards to if there is a giant emergency where power goes out, and also safety plans to teach your children about garage door.
Okay, so let’s start with the first safety plan: if there is a power outage. You should keep a box of supplies right inside the door of your garage. One of the things you should have on the very top is a flashlight. This makes it easy to find in the dark if the power goes out at night. Once you have your flashlight you can then see where everything is an if necessary you can then lift the garage door manually.
Secondly, you should have a safety plan in place for your kids. So many kids love to play on the garage door while it is lifting and lowering, but this is incredibly dangerous. If they were to fall and for some reason the safety mechanisms on the door stopped working the door could fall on them and crush them. That is why it is made very clear that they should never play on the door or even be around it while it is moving. It is the only sure way to keep them safe from any potential accidents.
