Be Aware on the Road.

Although Maryland is not known for it's sinkholes, they do happen.
The most common States where sinkholes are more likely to occur:

Sinkholes are naturally occurring holes in the surface
of the earth.  They can form gradually or suddenly.
They form in areas where water flowing underground
has dissolved rock, leading to underground voids.

It's become imperative to 
Be Aware to be a Safe Driver.

The Right Seat.

Vehicle crashes are one of the leading causes
of death for children between the ages of 1 and 13.

We know we've seen it happen.

3 out of every 4 car seats are not used correctly.

We've seen the effects on loved ones.

Car seats saved the lives
of 9,600 children between 1975 and 2010.

We've seen this too in our line of work.  Happy endings.

Did you know that our State law in Maryland
requires children under age 8 or 57" to
be in a car seat or booster seat.

Learn the facts here and save a life.

We care about you!

In the heat of it

During the winter months we're praying for summer.
During the summer we're praying for............Fall!

a burgeoning of colorful leaves sprouting on trees.

for turkey dinner...........

ok, back to summer!  So how's your summer going?

We're hoping your summer is fun, relaxing and uneventful.

Dawn and Dusk

Dawn and dusk is the absolute worse time
for mosquito's to find you!

How do they find your smell!

If you use a product like Deet, be sure to spray
on your clothes only and not on your exposed skin.
These chemicals can seep into your bloodstream, 
which is not a good thing.

Here's a natural repellant that you can
whip up on your own:

Daily Mom’s “Bug-Off” Insect Repellent Recipe
  • 6 ounces witch hazel
  • 2 tsp vegetable glycerin
  • 20 drops citronella essential oil
  • 20 drops eucalyptus essential oil
  • 10 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 5 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 5 drops clove essential oil
Other oils to try: geranium, lavender, any oil from the mint family, 
vanilla, lemongrass, tea tree, cedar, catnip.
Once you’ve gathered your oils, 
pour in a spray bottle, shake and apply every 
2 hours while you’re outside.

Once bitten here are some tips:
- Antihistamine cream will relieve the itch and swelling
-Ice pack
-Aloe Vera gel (keep in the frig where it's nice and cold)
-1% Hydrocortisone cream

Hey, we get bit too!  So we wanted to share a few tips
to keep you safe from these pesky critters during the summer month's.

Did you know?

Some interesting facts about Maryland:

State Bird:  Baltimore Oriole
State Reptile:  Diamondback Terrapin
State Fish:  Rockfish Striped Bass
State Crustacean:  Maryland Blue Crab....ooh, yummy!
State Insect - Baltimore Checkerspot Butterfly
State Dog - Chesapeake Bay Retriever
State Flower - Blackeyed susan
State Tree - White Oak

The state flag of Maryland was officially adopted in 1904. 
 It is the only US state flag based on British heraldry 
(the coats of arms of noble families). The flag's design was based 
on the coat of arms adopted by George Calvert, the first Lord Baltimore. 
The alternating yellow and black are from Lord Calvert's family shield; 
the red and white design is either from Calvert's maternal family, 
the Crosslands, or his wife's family, the Mynnes.

We're local.  We live here, play here and

We love our pets!

We love our pets and they love us!
So let's be sure to take care of them this summer.
Heat and humidity are sweltering for us and them!

It takes approximately 30 minutes for a dog
to become overheated and possibly a fatal situation
in a closed car - which becomes an oven, reaching
temps above 115 degrees.

Please, please.........should you lock your keys in
your car take immediate action.  If you call
George's Custom Towing, be sure to tell us of your
situation so we may get to you as quickly as possible.
We have pets too and love them just like you do.

Here are some quick summer dog safety tips:
- Do not walk your dog on hot asphalt............ooh, hurts their
little feet.
- Do not shave your dog, they get sunburns too!
-Check your dog for ticks
-Provide plenty of water

Does your dog have heat stroke?
Any signs of nausea/vomiting, dehydration, loss of
consciousness, stumbling, heavy panting, bright red tongue
or brain damage...............please rush to the Vet!

Lightening Strikes!

When Thunder Roars, Go Indoors!

Separating myth from facts:
Are you really safe in your car during a thunderstorm?

There is some truth to rubber tires grounding and
protecting you from lightening while in a vehicle.  
Your vehicle must have a hard top roof, windows closed
and keep away from all electrical devices that are plugged
into the car.

The danger of being in a vehicle when lightening strikes
include:  damage to the antenna,  electrical system, 
rear windshield and tires. 

Check with the NOAA before
heading on a road trip:

Another day, another tow

Kudos to our employee Darrell who tries very hard
to get on the job pictures!

Poor farmer......even tractors breakdown and that's just
not fun.
I wonder if this is covered by AAA?

So, we never know who we're going to meet
as another day comes around.  Being in the
tow truck business keeps you on your toes,
that's for sure!

very best to please!

Sizzling Hot

..asphalt, that is!

As we approach the hottest time of summer
be aware that the pavement is heating up
and this heat is brutal on your tires.

The National Highway Safety Administration
reported that over 11,000 accidents were caused
last year by under-inflated tires and road heat.

To avoid an accident and injury be sure
to keep your tires properly inflated.

Remember, we're just a phone
call away if you do require
emergency road service.
