THIS MIGHT SHOCK YOU: DOWNED POWER LINE!

THIS MIGHT SHOCK YOU: DOWNED POWER LINE!

  If you come across a downed power line, stay as far away from it as you can and call the power company immediately! More tips: Assume it is live. Never touch a downed power line or anything near it. Do not drive over down power lines. Should a power line fall on your car when you’re driving, slowly continue to move completely clear of it. If your car can’t move away from the power line, stay in the car until help arrives. If a person or pet comes in contact with a power line, stay clear and call 911 immediately. Do not touch them or the wire. If you watch carefully, you’ll notice that we missed a couple of important safety issues. *While filming the video, we neglected to make sure each driver was wearing their seat belt. It’s important to be safe around electricity and to always wear your seat belt and never text while driving

2018 SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY

2018 SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY

It’s hard for small businesses to compete with the big guys. But that’s why there’s Small Business Saturday. American Express founded Small Business Saturday in 2010, giving small businesses and brick-and-mortar stores across the country a special boost and a way to get shoppers’ attentions between Black Friday and Cyber Monday (Small Business Saturday will take place on Saturday Nov. 24 this year). Since its founding, it’s been a powerful opportunity to reconnect with customers — and boost sales. Last year, 112 million shoppers participated spending more than $15 billion. Shop Small Movement has gained momentum, as local officials across the nation take notice and promote Small Business Saturday. In 2011, the Senate unanimously passes a resolution in support of the day. By 2012, officials in all 50 states participate. Cities like Santa Monica even have Small Business Saturday eve ... read more
