Have an Escape Plan. Save Your Family’s Life.

By Passion4Safety

We have all seen it happen or have heard of such awful tragedies where people whom were caught in a fire did not escape or could not escape, losing their life.  Although you can never be prepared for the unexpected, you can at least have a plan. So often we just go with the norm; we practice safety drills at work and at school because that’s what we have to do. It is required of us as a student or as an employee to participate in such safety drills for the well-being of our lives within these places. When it comes to reviewing these same safety drills at home, the chances are less likely because there is either no time or time has not been taken. If your family is one that falls into that category PLEASE…PLEASE…PLEASE take the time to go over your home’s escape plan like what to do in the event of a fire, where to go, and what’s your options for a way of escape. I encourage you today to take the time out with your family to go over an escape plan. Know where your exits are. Locate all doors and windows; help find that escape to save a life. If there is a need for assistance, take a look at the First Alert Two Story Escape Ladder and  Three Story Escape Ladder. As well, print out this diagram which has instructions and guidelines on how to plan carefully and what to consider when planning your family’s escape route.

Make your happy home a safe home. Plan ahead; save lives!

Chirp…Chirp…Chirp…Keeping Your Alarm From Sounding Unnecessarily

By Passion4Safety 

Doesn’t this just irritate you when your smoke alarm goes off and there is no sign of fire or smoke present? I’m sure it is also frustrating because what most people do when the smoke alarm chirps without there being any sign of present danger is do a test, reset, and/or replace the battery. After doing all of that, the alarm still chirps; ugh! Well here are some additional things you can do to help stop your alarm from chirping (if it is alarming without cause (fire and/or smoke)), keeping it up to part, working properly:

  • Double check the cover or sensor of your alarm to make sure that your alarm is free from dirt, dust, or insects.
  • Check to see if there was power interruption. A lot of times when power is interrupted such as a power outage (if your alarm is hardwired), you alarm will sound off when power is interrupted and is trying to be restored.
  • Along with power interruptions, weak connections to your electrical unit can cause intermitted chirps as well.
  • Improper wiring of your alarms can give a beeping/chirping sound indicating that your wires are not connected correctly.
  • For those battery operated smoke alarms, make sure that the batteries you are using to replace, are completely new “fresh” batteries. Depending on where you store your unused batteries, it can loose some its charge before being used (i.e. storing unused batteries in cold areas vs. in a cool, dry area where the temperature is moderated.

 

For more information on what you can do to keep your alarm in proper working order, please consult your manual for specific troubleshooting tips and guidelines.

Keep your happy home, a safe home.

By Passion4Safety

4 Channel DVR 15" LCD Monitor Combo Unit (Security Package 1501)

You’re a new business starting, church community growing, or a new family home beginning. There is nothing like starting out your new home, business, and/or church community with a security system to help protect you, your family, or your community. For your home, it helps to keep a watch out for intruders or whenever you and your family may leave for the holidays or vacation, keep a “third eye” out on your home. How about that new business starting; keeping secured the assets your business has and the property where your business stands is quite a necessity for the protection of your business. What about that church home. You want to make sure as people enter in and out, are safely watched over and that the activity around the premises are doing nothing but promoting the church as well as securing the church’s assets at well. Buying a professional security system is great. What’s even better is buying a security system you have full control of: what can be seen, play back versatility, and cameras that you can choose to wire in whatever areas you feel are needed to be monitored the most.

Let First Alert Rescue Mat Be Your Aid to Walk on Water and Help Someone!

by Passion4Safety

Rescue Mat Water Rescue Device

If you had the ability to walk on water and save someone in danger would you? For our fire departments, saving a life in danger out in our waters 2 to 3 seconds sooner (from this device) is much rewarding than you can imagine. Also the added convenience of unwrapping and deploying, this water rescue device is quick without the hassle. Although all water devices are good because they all have one common goal in mind: to save and prevent, with this First Alert Rescue Mat, it is 25ft in length and 5 feet in width. You can deploy from your station, land, or dock without dangering yourself in the process of saving someone else. Something else that is good to consider, with it holding up to 1,250 lbs of weight in open water with advanced stability, not only will you be able to save one, you can save all. We all know that it’s a heartache to see and be able to go back and forth and save people in danger one by one versus knowing that for all those in danger (if multiple people are involved) in our waters, can be rescued all at once. Keep in mind that this device is not just good for our fire departments but resorts, boating clubs, centers, just anywhere where water activity and attraction is near, danger could be present. Saving someone in danger do not have any requirements but getting out there, saving that person or people from danger.

(These excellent videos above and below are the judge in showing you the rescue mat full performance)

Not Your Average Carbon Monoxide Alarm: Combination Explosive Gas and Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Backlit Digital Display

By Passion4Safety

Explosive Gas Carbon Monoxide Combo Alarm (GCO1CN)

When you look at this alarm, you do not see your typical circle or oval-shaped carbon monoxide alarm. Instead you see an alarm with a backlit digital display you can view danger, current, and peak co levels within your home. Not to mention if you open up the front cover on the alarm, under the cover you will find a storage compartment where a 9v battery (backup) runs if in the event of an electrical power outage and your plug-in (portion of your alarm) is not able to function at that time. Speaking of plug-in, did you know that the plug-in to this alarm is detachable to be able to high mount or low mount your alarm? Yes, talk about extra benefits.  This alarm just doesn’t test for carbon monoxide (the obvious of them all), it also test for explosive gases such as propane and natural/methane gas. With such an alarm as this, carbon monoxide is not the only thing as you see that we have to be concerned with; gases that cause an explosion if not detected and cleared out is another concern. Do not worry if carbon monoxide or any gases are detected with this alarm; with the loud 85db alarm, you will have no problem hearing this alarm across any part of the rooms in your house whether doors are opened or closed.

I encourage you to check out this video below to get a closer look at this Combination Explosive Gas and Carbon Monoxide Alarm:
