The Future of Locksmithing

Orangeville, ON (James Doan) A locksmith is a skilled craftsman. He is the representative of one of the oldest trades in history. Throughout hundreds of years, his work has taken on a secretive character and he has kept most of his trade secrets to himself.

As time and need changed the techniques of locksmithing, many special phases of the craft began to emerge.

Rekeying Your Home’s Door Locks

Orangeville, ON (James Doan) Anyone who moves into a new home and doesn’t change the locks could be setting themselves up for an easy break-in. People often give spare keys to friends and family, but they don’t always bother to reclaim them when they move. Imagine how many people might have keys to a home that has had three owners or multiple tenants and never had the locks changed.

Would Your Child Accept a Ride from a Friend Who’s High?

(NC) We all like to think our kids make smart, safe decisions every time. But everyone makes mistakes, sometimes through poor judgment or misinformation. For example, 24 percent of young adults believe it’s safe to drive a vehicle only a couple of hours or less after using marijuana. Another 26 percent even believe that a driver is either the same or better on the road when under the influence of marijuana.

Exit Doors and the Life Safety Code

Orangeville, ON (James Doan) The life safety code covers a wide range of situations. Many of them are straightforward and in some cases common sense. But there are some issues you probably wouldn’t consider as code infractions.

You need to remember that if there is an exit sign above the door, it MUST be operational and code compliant. There are NO excuses.

Keep Long Weekend Celebrations Safe – Drive Sober

Oakville, ON (MADD Canada) MADD Canada and Allstate Insurance Company of Canada are asking everyone to make safe and sober transportation a priority as they celebrate the last long weekend of summer.

No one ever thinks they will be affected by impaired driving, but hundreds of people are killed and tens of thousands are injured in impairment-related crashes every year.

Inattentive Drivers Causing More Collisions Than Impaired and Speeding Drivers Combined

Primrose, ON (OPP- Dufferin Detachment) Inattentive driving is linked to more collisions on Ontario Provincial Police (OPP)-patrolled roads so far this year than speeding and alcohol/drug-related collisions combined.
