Check your smoke detectors

Before you read this post, quickly, make sure your smoke detectors are in working order. When was the last time you looked at them? When was the last time you tested them?

A father and his one year old daughter perished in a fire yesterday after being trapped in their front room. The rest of the family was able to escape out the back. It is reported that the one year old had taken her first step just the day before. Even more tragic, the fire department believes that this could have been avoided if there was a working smoke detector in the house.

This is a reminder for all of us to take a safety more seriously.
