Winter Home Safety Challenge (alarm #giveaway !) #worryfreehome

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

  1. I scored 90% as a Home Safety Hero and I guess I need more smoke detectors than I thought.

    • oops, didn’t specify which area needs more attention. I need more smoke detectors near our bedroom.

  2. I scored 80%. I need to change batteries in smoke dectors every 6 months. Personal note, I need to replace my smoke dectors….I never thought about they going bad.

  3. our bedrooms and our basement workshop need the most attention – thanks for the giveaway!

  4. I only scored 55%! :/ Don’t have a smoke detector or a carbon monoxide detector.

  5. I couldn’t get the survey to load, but I think I need more smoke detectors around the house and basement.

  6. I scored 80% – Holiday Safety Star. One thing I hadn’t thought of was discussing a fire exit strategy with my son. He’s almost 3 now and would be able to understand that kind of thing about now… Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

  7. I’m a Holiday Safety Star! But I need to work on replacing batteries and smoke alarms more often. Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. You scored 85% on this audit. You are a Holiday Safety Star!

    Nice job! You care about safety but may have forgotten to fix a few things during the rush of the holidays. With a few quick remedies, you’ll be a Holiday Safety Hero in no time!

  9. Mine was 85% I need newer lights, and to change the batteries, I just wain until the smoke detector beeps.

  10. I need a carbon monoxide detector and to remember to change batteries in the alarms more often.

  11. I couldn’t get the survey to load, but I know we need more safety in the newly finished basement.

  12. I am a Holiday Safety Hero and need to make sure I check the alarms every 6 months if maintenance has not done so.

  13. We only have 1 smoke detector in our entire house and I don’t even regularly check the batteries. I guess our entire house needs attention.

  14. Your result:
    You scored 85% on this audit. You are a Holiday Safety Star!
    My kitchen area needs the most attention. Thanks for the review. The survery helped me see were I needed to improve.

  15. You scored 95% on this audit. You are a Holiday Safety Hero!

    Wow! You are a holiday home safety champ: you set the standard for home safety and are always thinking about how to keep your home in top condition, even during the busy holiday period. Keep up the great work!

  16. I got 90% and I’m a Holiday Safety Hero! Yay! Go me! kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.

  17. I got 75% and learned more about smoke/carbon monoxide detectors. We don’t replace batteries often enough and don’t have a smoke detector in each bedroom, just in the hallway (but we sleep with the doors open, if that makes a difference).

  18. I am lacking with basement safety. I’m not even sure if I have detectors down there 🙁 And here I am so worried about my upstairs. Geeze.
