John here. I have exciting news. Today, we introduced our Firefighter Tribute Socks. I helped design these socks to say thank you to all the firefighters like my Uncle Ron, Coach Joe, my Special Olympics Coach, Nick Smith, a classmate of mine, and my friend Anthony D'Esposito.

I rode on a fire truck and delivered the socks to the Firefighter's Museum because we donate 10 percent of the socks to the Museum. And then I rode on a fire truck to different firehouses to hand out socks and say thank you. I had so much fun.

Buying these socks helps us say thank you for all the good work that firefighters all across America do. And every time you buy from John's Crazy Socks, you help give a job to my colleagues with differing abilities.
I hope you love the socks (and the masks). Thank you so much.

Hand sanitizer and barbecues are a dangerous combination

While we all go the extra step in sanitizing, especially while handling and preparing food, you may want to skip the hand sanitizer while grilling this weekend.

Here's something to consider about food prep in the age of COVID-19.

While we are all taking extra precautions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, please be careful and safe in what you do.
We have heard an alarming way people are attempting to kill the virus - by microwaving their mail ✉️📪!!
This is not only a 🔥fire hazard🔥 but has no proven effectiveness.
If you want to play it safe, let your packages and mail sit for 24 hours before you open them and wash your hands after handling.

Be safe and fire smart!

Now is a great time to clear the clutter! Make sure to clear all hallways and exits in your home of any clutter. This will make it easier for you and your family to escape, should there be a fire or other emergency. It will also allow easier access for first responders during an emergency.

Practice fire safety at home, especially when using candles. Open flames, including candles, cause hundreds of fires each year. Please follow candle safety or use a flame-less candle instead.
