I like to think of myself as a prepared mom. Whether we’re at a school function, sports event or on a family vacation, I’m always prepared with what may come our way. But am I prepared for those unexpected events such as a fire? I want my family to be super prepared for all those unexpected life events. Since October is Fire Prevention Month I thought it would be the perfect time to share all of my tips with you and how we can prepared in the event of a house fire.
First Alert is the most trusted brand in home safety. They are well known for smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and other fire safety products. So, I was excited they sent me their Fire Prevention Kit which includes:
- 10-Year Atom Smoke & Fire Alarm (MSRP: $39.99)
- 10-Year Dual Sensor Smoke & Fire Alarm (MSRP: $49.95)

- 10-Year Combination Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm (MSRP: $49.99)

It’s the perfect fire prevention kit for us to be a super prepared family. Here’s my tips on how to be prepared for unexpected house fires.
Install, Replace and Test Alarms. It’s important to have enough smoke alarms in your home. You should have smoke alarms installed inside every sleep room as well as outside each sleeping area and on every level of your home. You should test all smoke alarms at least once per month.
Have a Safety Checklist. It is so important to have a safety checklist so everyone in your home can be prepared. First Alert offers excellent plans on their website for fire safety.
Plan a Fire Escape Route. Draw a map of your home by using the grid on First Alert’s website with all members of your household, marking two exits from each room and a path to the outside from each exit. It’s important you also teach your children a plan for exiting the home on their own.
Have a Meeting Place. Always have a place to meet outside, away from a fire, so everyone in your family can be accounted for and you can easily see if someone is missing.
I encourage you all to unleash your own super powers with the “Super Prepared Family” to help spread awareness about home fire safety.
