Newest Cure: Kidde Smoke Detectors at Home Depot (and Giveaway!) #HDFireSafety

f4f97530-01b6-46b5-b1dc-d68a670be3ec_300We all know that familiar chirp..and then it’s too familiar. And then you can’t find it. And then it goes away for a few days, or so you think…maybe you forgot about it..then you hear it again! Problem is it’s hard to reach that smoke detector, difficult to pull it apart and who knows if you even have the right batteries to keep it from chirping again! Well. Rest your ears and minds and be safe. We’re partnering up with The  Home Depot this month on Fire safety who’s given us a Kidde Worry-Free Smoke Alarm that has a 10-year sealed-in lithium battery. TEN YEARS!! I feel like I have to sporadically change my smoke detectors at least every two or three years..and that’s with all the time I spend letting them chirp away until I finally get desperate enough to change them! But…But, I know I need to change something because, as I read recently, “while only three percent of American homes do not have fire alarms installed, homes without fire alarms account for 23 percent of fatal residential fires, according to data collected by the U.S. Fire Administration’s National Fire Incident Reporting System.” So we’re going to giveaway one of these smoke detectors to one of you. And make sure to check out Home Depot’s whole Kidde Worry-Free Smoke Alarm and Carbon Monoxide Detector line of products.

What’s really cool about this night light is that it works just like a normal night light, providing just a bit of light to allow you to see when you wake-up in the middle of the night to take a tinkle. But it also has an incredible feature that allows it to turn onto a fire safety mode in which it becomes much brighter at the sound of the fire alarm to help guide you down the path to safety. This is important because, as I was reading, “if a fire starts, you and your family may have as little as two minutes to escape a dangerous situation, and these night lights help you make the best use of that time.”

  1. we have and evacuation plan if you are upstairs there is a fire safety ladder. Downstairs we have 3 exits.

  2. We have been discussing this all week and created an escape plan, checked our alarm batteries, put our extinguisher in a safe and accessible place and are looking to buy an escape ladder.

  3. Have a plan! At home, we need to talk about fire safety and how to get out. What to do, what not to do, and simply the options there are such as how to get out a window

  4. My best tip is to have a safety ladder that is long enough upstairs so we can climb down if there is a fire. We have a good fire escape drill that we will follow.

  5. We have more than one type of fire alarm/smoke detector in out house just in case because fires can burn slowly, quickly, with little smoke, with lots if smoke, etc,

  6. Do fire drills at least once every 3 months to keep your kids knowledgeable about how to get out safely if there is a fire.

  7. Everyone has a plan, and everyone knows how to follow the plan (how to safely exit the house and get to the designated safe spot) if there’s ever a fire.

  8. My tip is to install a smoke alarm that has a 10-year battery then get a new one since smoke alarms expire after 10 years.
