Fire safety is very important to us. We live in an old house and you can never trust the wiring in it. Recently I partnered with The Home Depot folks, and this week, I’m sharing info and tips on all things fire safety related, beginning with a Worry-Free Carbon Monoxide Alarm and a Kidde smoke alarm. The Home Depot partnered with Kidde products and Life+Gear nightlights to help raise awareness during Fire Safety Month. So many people don’t take the measures needed and often have the mentality of “it won’t happen to me” but I know too many families in our community that have lost EVERYTHING due to a home fire.
If you recall, I actually talked you guys awhile back about the CO alarm. Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas that can be deadly within minutes. It’s known as the ‘invisible killer’ which is why it’s even more important to have one of these Carbon Monoxide alarms installed in your home! I was terrified about installing it because I thought it would go off minutes after installation. Of course, it didn’t and that eased my mind so much! With our gas appliances and heaters, carbon monoxide had always been a concern. It’s so nice to know that everything is okay and is still okay.
Same thing with the smoke alarm. We have ours down the hall, towards the two back bedrooms and one in our room. And I always recommend two, especially if your kids are sleeping on the other side of the house.
One of the things I love about the Kidde alarms, is they are very simple to install and setup. It literally takes a couple of minutes y’all. The Kidde Worry-Free alarms are maintenance free with a 10 year battery life, don’t have the annoying chirping, and is a brand you can trust. Another cool thing is that when your battery life is finally coming to an end, it will sound a signal letting you know. AWESOME!
You may not be able to prevent a fire from starting in your home but you dang sure can stop it with these products before something absolutely tragic occurs. Take the time to make your home more secure during fire safety month!
