Wrap up the gift of safety for this holiday season
The next time you plan on presenting a present, consider giving the gift of safety.
Fire safety products — smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms and fire extinguishers — save lives, yet many families are not adequately protected. While experts warn that extinguishers should not be used to combat large, rapidly spreading fires, having a working fire extinguisher within reach on every level of your home and for every 600 feet of living space may be your only chance to create a path to safety in the event of a fire.
Experts also recommend installing a carbon dioxide alarm on every level of the home and in sleeping areas.
