Home Safety Challenge and Giveaway

How safe is your home? Do you have a family escape plan? How about fire extinguishers in your kitchen or near the grill? I recently took a Home Safety Challenge sponsored by Kidde, and discovered that our home isn’t quite as safe as I thought, scoring only 55%.

Even though we have a Carbon Monoxide Alarm in our home, it wasn’t until we had a furnace inspection last Fall, that we discovered there was a piece broken in the furnace that was slowly leaking Carbon Monoxide. I had been having lots of headaches, but figured it was stress or a change in the weather. Luckily, we caught the problem and had a new furnace installed.

To bring awareness to Home Safety, Kidde is offering an Intelligent Smoke CO Alarm to a lucky reader.

Kidde’s Intelligent Alarm uses breakthrough technology to offer a faster response to real fires, including smoldering and fast-flaming, as well as offer warning of carbon monoxide (CO) and dramatically reduce the chance of nuisance alarms. In addition, the Intelligent Alarm contains a voice warning that clearly states the present danger – smoke or carbon monoxide – and announces “Fire! Fire!” or “Warning! Carbon Monoxide!”

So…how safe is your home? Please take a few minutes to take the free Home Safety Audit and find out just how safe your home is!

    I would say the area that needs most attention in my home is my upstairs by my bedroom. I would feel alot saver if I knew my family and I will be better protected if I won.
