I want you to do something. Go take a look around your house. Do you have a working smoke detector near your kitchen? Do you have one near the sleeping areas of the house and at least one on each floor? I'm asking this because I'm seeing folks who do NOT. And it gets me worried. So I'm blogging.
And please would you check on your elderly friends and relatives? Maybe even be a little nosy. We're dealing with some elderly folks who forgot that they had over 200 pounds of ammunition and a bunch of butane lying around. Not even kidding. I'm all for "live free or die" and all that but please don't take that too literally and bring the whole 'hood with ya. (Yeah, it's been dealt with... but sheesh).
I just received this fire safety guide in my email a few weeks back from ConsumerSafety.org and thought I would share it with you. Another thing I've found very helpful are the talks our local fire department gives in the community from time to time. Your fire department may help you with fire prevention and often, they give smoke detectors for free or reduced cost to people in need.
I hope everyone is having a great week. Sorry I haven't been blogging as much as usual... we've been dealing with stuff don'cha know.
