Sleeping comes pretty easy when you’re a kid because   you really don’t have near as much to worry about, but when it comes to getting some shut-eye now, there can   be a hundred things on your mind: What will work throw   at you tomorrow, how will you get it all done, and is your family safe? Sure you may just brush the last thought off, but there are a lot of things that can happen while everyone is asleep and if you haven’t prepared yourself for the dangers, your family is at risk.

Smoke Detectors

Smoke detectors save hundreds of lives every year, but if you aren’t testing your smoke alarm or if you simply don’t replace it every 10 years, you may still be in danger. According to the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association), smoke alarms cut the chances of dying in a fire in half.  This is good first step to protecting your family before you decide to catch some Z’s.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Since carbon monoxide poisoning is the leading cause of accidental poisonings in the U.S., it is important to find a way to protect your family from it, especially during the winter months. While a fire can emit lots of smoke and light, carbon monoxide can be much more silent and elusive. Your family may show symptoms of the flu, but it may actually be carbon monoxide poisoning. You don’t wait for symptoms to tell you when things are wrong with the right carbon monoxide detector; you will be able to protect your family from this silent killer.

Your home should be a place of refuge and investing in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors is crucial to maintaining that peace in your home. If you find that you are staying up late at night worried about what could happen, it is time to invest in some quality detectors. Your family and sleep are well worth it!
