Top 3 Safety Items Every Home Should Have

Accidents can happen in any home. In fact, kitchen fires and carbon monoxide leaks are more common than you might think. Fortunately, with a proactive approach, you can keep your home and your family safe.

To keep your home safe, here are three essential safety items every household should have. 

1. Fire Extinguisher

Every home should have at least one fire extinguisher. It should be located in your kitchen in case of grease fires or a towel catching fire from the range. Be sure to check the expiration date of your fire extinguisher regularly and replace it as needed. Make sure that everyone at home knows where the fire extinguisher is and how to use it. 

2. Smoke Detectors

Smoke alarms are lifesavers before they alert you before a fire fully breaks out. This is why it’s important to have a smoke alarm for every room in your house. The U.S. Fire Administration recommends testing your smoke detectors once a month. Call up your home maintenance contractor to change out the batteries for you. You can also increase your home’s safety by installing a combination of smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

3. First Aid Kit

Get a complete first aid kit from your local medical supply boutique or an adventure shop. Alternatively, you can make one on your own. Make sure that your first aid kit has bandages in different sizes, as well as tweezers, ointment and adhesive tape. The great thing about first aid kits is that they contain everything you need in one simple package. You don’t have to scour through different drawers to get the things that you need.
