We are fully prepared for back to school in our home with school supplies, sneakers, backpacks and our First Alert Tabletop Carbon Monoxide Alarm. I always feel like the start of a new school year gives us a chance as a family to renew and start fresh.
Be Back to School Ready with First Alert
Having piece of mind with our First Alert 10-year sealed battery carbon monoxide alarm is important not only for our family at home, but our son who is attending college this year for the first time. I know I cannot always be there to keep him safe but having this carbon monoxide alarm helps give me the piece of mind that he is protected. This easy to use alarm detects dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.
With no installation for this alarm, I know that he will be able to set it up no matter if he is living in the dorm, apartment or at home. Simply activate it and you are protected for 10-years! Place this stylish alarm on a dresser or tabletop and you are ready to go.
What is carbon monoxide?
Known as the silent killer, carbon monoxide is an invisible, odorless deadly gas that can be produced by any fuel-burning device.
Carbon Monoxide Safety Tips
1. Install an alarm.
First Alert Tabletop Carbon Monoxide Alarm with 10-year battery and digital temperature display is the next thing to add to your Back to School list. I know we don’t always think of back to school and carbon monoxide together, but with the easy functionality of this alarm you can rest easy knowing your family is safe. With a 10-year operational life and a sleek design that shows temperature and dangerous carbon monoxide levels when detected, it is an easy way to make sure your family is safe no matter where there are headed this school year.
2. Never leave a car running in a closed garage.
3. Have an escape plan or route for your family in case of emergency. Our children know that if there is an emergency in the house to just leave the house and go to the mailbox to wait for everyone else.
4. Should the carbon monoxide alarm go off- leave your home immediately for fresh air and call 911.
We should start thinking of back to school as a time to start new routines, re-establish old ones, and prepare our families for school. This year we are practicing our safety goals. Now that the children are older, they can be a part of our safety plan. We have been working with the younger ones to remind them that should there be an emergency that they should leave the house immediately and go to our meeting spot. Having a plan not only gives me as mom some piece of mind but I think it also gives our children a level of security as well.
Giving my son a First Alert Tabletop Carbon Monoxide Alarm in his back to school boxes makes me feel a little better as he starts this new adventure in life. We are definitely ready for back to school! What are some things that are on your back to school list?
