We need your help to keep you and your family safe with the use of fire and carbon monoxide alarms. I just finished reading the fire watch portion of the NFPA journal magazine and I am very concerned about the amount of fires that there are lately throughout the United States.
Too many fatalities are happening from the lack of fire and carbon monoxide alarms. We have become very complacent wth the lack of fire and carbon monoxide detectors. Please have a minimum of one fire alarm in each bedroom, one in each bedroom hallway and cellar. A minimum of one carbon monoxide on each level of your home and your business as well. If you do not have one of these alarms, please take the time to give us a call and we will see that you receive an alarm. Safety message provided by the following persons.
