Safety is the state of being "safe" the condition of being protected against physical, social, spiritual, financial, political, emotional, occupational, psychological, educational or other types or consequences of failure, damage, error, accidents, harm or any other event which could be considered non-desirable. Safety can also be defined to be the control of recognized hazards to achieve an acceptable level of risk. This can take the form of being protected from the event or from exposure to something that causes health or economical losses. It can include protection of people or of possessions.

Unfortunately – we all too often learn the hard way about safety – tripping, falling, burns, shock, sunburn, food poisoning, auto accidents, and leg cramps while swimming to mention a few – all preventable by simple following safety precautions we have known most of our lives.
Safety and preparedness go hand in hand – knowing the potentials for problems and how to prepare for, take proactive measures, and to deal with those thing we have no control over. Be Prepared.
