Be Safe: Home Safety Checklist Printable
Did you know that October is National Fire Prevention Month? Well it is…and I think it’s an awesome reminder to have these conversations with our families within our homes. Seeing that October is National Fire Prevention Month, it is a great time to shop for Kidde Fire Safety essentials and have them placed in your home. The most important moment in a home emergency could be the moment, like now, that you prepare for the home emergency in the best way possible.
Our homes are supposed to be a safe haven and I think, as a parent, I strive to do all that I can to create that atmosphere. No matter where home is for you, it’s important to make sure there are safety measures within your home and around your home. It takes a little time, intentional effort, and being proactive through conversations with one another.
As we moved into our new home this past year we made sure that we followed some guidelines and safety measures to ensure our home is safe – to the best of our abilities! I created a home safety checklist that we can step through from time to time throughout the year and make sure we are following safety steps/tips. I’ve made this free to you all to use as well for your own families and homes. I hope it’s a great help to get you started in the right direction with taking the time to ensure your home is as safe as possible. Home Safety Checklist – Free Printable
