Fire Prevention Month with First Alert

Thank you First Alert for sponsoring this post. October is Fire Prevention Month! Help ensure your home and family are protected by installing smoke & carbon monoxide alarms!

Before this, the last time that I participated in a fire drill, I was in college. That was more than 10 years ago! With October being Fire Prevention Month- this is the time to take fire safety seriously. Especially as a mom to a busy 2-year-old. 

One of the most trusted fire safety brands is First Alert. I remember my father installing their smoke alarms in our house when I was little. They have been protecting homes since 1958. So you know that they can be trusted! 

When you think/hear the line “Be Ready for the Unexpected” what comes to your mind? Safety is the first thing that pops up for me! The first question that I have for you this month is “Do you have smoke & carbon monoxide alarms in your home?” If yes, amazing! If not, please get some ASAP! 

If you’re unsure where to start, one product to boost on your radar is the First Alert’s 10-Year Sealed Battery Combination Alarm with Voice and Location technology Why? Because it’s going to notify you of two deadly threats: smoke & carbon monoxide! This alarm will tell you the type and location of danger in your home. Also the lithium-ion battery is going to last for 10 years! No more freaking out because you don’t have an available battery to change. Quick FYI: Just because it is a 10-year battery, doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t check on it! You should regularly press the test button to make sure that everything is in working order and good to go! 

My second question for you is “Do you have an alarm in every bedroom and every level of your home? I’m hoping that you say yes! If not, please invest! It’s definitely worth it! You never know when the next smoke or carbon monoxide threat is potentially going to start. 

Last question- “What is your Emergency Escape plan?” Remember how I talked about fire drills in school? This should be familiar to you. Think about it kind of like that! Have a designated path that you should take to get out of the house plus a good meeting spot. Then practice it! And make sure that everyone (babies and toddlers should be designated to an adult) in the house knows and understands it. 

I downloaded a First Alert .PDF escape plan template (like the template) off their site to draw out where we should be going, in event of a fire. I was able to identify two ways out of each room- including doors, balconies and windows. Plus a safe meeting spot! Somewhere a safe distance outside away from our home. We will practice this twice a year. I’m thinking in the winter and summer! 

Thank you for reading this post and I hope my tips helped! You NEVER know what’s going to happen next. It’s important to stay cautious, plan, and protect your family for any unexpected event.
