Is your house or apartment as safe as it could or should be?
Are you doing all that you can to avoid fire and other hazards? I know that I, for one, know all of the things about which I am supposed to be careful…but sometimes life gets in the way and I am careless.
I am constantly leaving things plugged in and walking away, leaving cords strewn all over the place so that I trip over them later. This is a problem in any season with my laptop, but now that it is cold and Flu season, I anticipate trouble with humidifier wires….plugs and spilling water are a definite no-no! I am also guilty of lighting my Shabbat candles and either going to sleep or leaving the house, probably a big safety no-no. I am even guilty of wacking my smoke detector with a broom handle to make it stop beeping after I burn something…(admit it, you’ve done that!)
Amazingly enough, when I took The Kidde Holiday Home Safety Challenge I got an 80%…which I guess means that I know all the right things to do, even if I am not always doing them.
You can win a new Kidde Worry-Free Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (worry-free because it uses one battery for the duration of its life!) to help make your home just a little bit safer. Ends 1/25 at 12AM
