pageiconsafety3Keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe is important to us all. Summer in Alaska provides special safety challenges with more time on the water and endless daylight hours for fun activities and home maintenance. Focusing on prevention and safe practices trains us to think of safety first whenever we engage in an activity; whether at work, recreation or everyday around the house.
