Home Safety

Homes are often where people feel the most safe and secure. It’s where you spend much of your time, day in and day out. It’s where you eat, sleep, laugh and play, and see your children grow up. This sense of security though is only surface deep. There are dangers in the home, like smoke, fire and carbon monoxide, that can be a threat to any family.

But being prepared with the right alarms (carbon monoxide is undetectable without one) and emergency plans can help reduce the risks you may face. Use the safety tips and checklists here to help prepare your kids and family for things like a fire or carbon monoxide leak.
