I have been a firefighter for over 35 years now. I have been a fire and life safety educator for 57 years. Huh? How old must this curmudgeon be? Let me explain, from the moment I took my first gulp of air my parents began concerning themselves with my safety. Except for the year they purchased a skate board for me their actions thoughout my life were based upon keeping me as safe as they could. My existence forced them to make certain purchases and decisions that would ultimately educate both them and me about fire and life safety. So I consider myself somewhat of an expert, and so should you, hopefully your parents cared about you as well
So here is some expert advice... log on to homesafetycouncil.org. This site offers free resources for you, your family and especially your public safety agency. Much of the material is easy and ready to use for whatever occasion or whatever your fire and life safety needs. I know the people who developed this site and while they don't have as much experience as me (57 years) they have been at it along time and they have proven methods of success. If you have not looked at this site please do so now, you will find the site to be user friendly and informative. Before you ask, no they didn't pay me to write this, as an expert in fire and life safety I recognize quality fire and life safety materials when I see them, my parents made sure of that.
