October is a good time to check:
1) Your Smoke/Fire Alarms in the home. Are they placed properly in the event of smoke or fire? Also do make sure your batteries are fresh and in working order. BUT just to be safe we recommend you put new batteries in and test the alarms.
2) Your Fire Extinguishers. How old are they? Are they fully charged? What kind of Fire Extinguisher should I get?
