Our Holiday Safety tweets will provide daily tips aimed at keeping you safer while at home, shopping or travelling to visit friends and relatives.”   

The “Twelve Tweets of Holiday Safety” is a series of daily tweets with tips to help keep residents safe while at home, traveling or celebrating during the holidays. Tweets will be sent out Monday through Friday between December 2 and December 17.
