It’s so easy to get caught up in the spirit of the holiday season without thinking of potential dangers that might be lurking. We pull out the extension cords, string lights, hang ornaments, light fires and candles to celebrate the holiday. But are we taking care that all this holiday cheer isn’t putting our families in danger? I recently took the Kidde Holiday Home Safety Audit and learned that I am a Holiday Safety Hero, but still am a bit surprised by some of what I learned. Are you a Holiday Safety Hero?
Here are just a few of the questions from the survey…
Are all extension cords and light strings UL-approved?
Do you use a step stool instead of furniture to hang decorations?
Has your chimney been inspected and cleaned this year?
Do you always turn off the lights on your Christmas tree when going to bed or leaving your home?
Do you replace the smoke alarms’ batteries every 6 months AND replace them every 10 years?
Keep your family safe this holiday season and throughout the year with a Kidde Worry Free Alarm. Kidde Worry Free Alarms are powered by sealed-in, 10-year lithium batteries Kidde’s new Worry-Free Smoke Alarms use one battery for the life of the alarm to provide 24/7 fire safety protection, eliminating the hassles of low battery chirps and battery replacement.
I encourage you to take the Kidde Consumer Challenge yourself and find out if you’re playing it safe this holiday season.
Kidde wants to give one our readers their new Worry-Free Kitchen Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (a $48 value), which uses one battery for the life of the alarm to provide 24/7 fire safety protection and eliminates the hassles of low battery chips (we’ve all had them in the middle of the night!). It also includes a sensor that virtually eliminates nuisance alarms caused by cooking!
