When it comes to fire safety at home, the first step in protection is DETECTION.
Smoke alarms and Carbon Monoxide alarms are a critical tools to help protect your family in case of a fire. They alert you to a problem immediately to allow you to get to safety.
But there are other tools you can keep in your home that will take your fire safety to the next level, because nothing is more important than the safety of your family.
Kidde Fire Extinguisher
Having a Kidde Fire Extinguisher in the house helps me feel a bit more in control. Should a fire break out that blocks an exit, the fire extinguisher will give us a better chance at getting out. We keep ours under the kitchen sink because having a gas stove there is certainly more opportunity for a fire to start in the kitchen. Plus we have 2 ways to exit out of our kitchen, it’s sort of a central area so there is a better chance someone can get to it, especially if we only have one. I do plan on getting a couple more extinguishers. I want to put on in the garage and one downstairs as well. They don’t take up too much room, and are affordable so you don’t have to compromise on your family’s safety.
Life+Gear Fire Safety Night Light
Practicing an exit strategy from your home in case of a fire is important to help your children understand how to get out of the house safely in case of a fire. The Life+Gear Fire Safety Night Light helps make it a bit easier to follow the exit plan and make it to safety.
Nothing is more important than getting out of the house in case of a fire.
