First Alert Home Safety Checklist
No matter where home is for you, it’s important to make sure that you have safety within your home and around your home. As we’ve just moved into our new home we made sure that we followed some guidelines and safety measures to ensure our home is safe – to the best of our abilities.
We are all excited to “live with a 10!” The importance and safety of having the 10-Year Combination Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarms within your home.
Have you ever been sleeping in the middle of the night and a low battery chirp starts chirping with your alarms?!?! Oh yes, ma’am we have! I’m going to share with you today the best benefit of the 10-year alarm…No costly battery replacements for the life of the alarm… No more climbing up the ladder to change batteries…THE BEST ONE –> No late night low-battery chirps!
One of the first items we wanted to share about and love is the First Alert 10-Year Combination Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm. A few things we loved (besides no late night low battery chirps!) about this being in our home:
- First Alert 10-year sealed battery alarms offer hassle-free protection that helps keep your home and family protected for a decade!
- Along with the 10-year sealed battery, some First Alert alarms also have voice alerts. This alarm will tell you the type and location of danger in your home.
For us creating a home safety checklist only made sense! We could step through this checklist throughout the year and make sure we follow these safety tips. You can also snag the checklist so you can use within your home as well –> Home Safety Checklist – Free Printable
- Install First Alert 10-Year Combination Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm (one on every floor of your home)
- Add deadbolts to all doors with outdoor access
- Don’t leave a spare key outside your home, have it in the hands of a neighbor
- Add motion sensors for outdoor lighting
- Make sure all windows are locked, at all times
- Store valuables in a fire proof safe
- Store fire extinguishers in fire prone areas
- Have a fire escape plan/route and practice with your family
- Document Binder is up to date and easily accessible
- Have a First Aid Kit complete and in an easily accessible location
Additional Safety Reminders:
Test smoke and carbon monoxide alarms regularly.
Replace batteries every six months or upgrade to 10-year sealed battery alarms to eliminate the need for battery replacements for the life of the alarm.
Alarms don’t last forever, remember to replace your alarms at least every ten years
Are there any safety measures we are over-seeing? We’d love to know what your plan is for your home and family, we are always looking for ways to improve!!
