Most important: My daughter had a project for the fire department. It's about smoke alarms and home safety. Not exactly the title, but I can't remember it line for line right now.
We watched safety videos about how smoke alarms can save your lives.
We went over our escape plan if something should happen and our rendezvous point.
Then I decided to test the smoke alarms with her, so she can hear how they would/should sound.
Sooooooooooooooo we could have died many times over.
Anyway, I bought batteries for the alarms. And the husband put them in and the kids heard how the alarms are supposed to sound.
Sad thing is that, since we moved into this home, I've wanted to test the smoke alarms. I should have followed my instincts.
Those instincts have been with me all these years and I never followed up. I should be ashamed, but I'm glad now it's rectified.
Not only that, but the person we purchased the house from was a chain smoker, so much so that the walls are stained in smoke gunk. Oh how we scrubbed when we first moved in!
Anyway. Our alarms are healthy again and I need to purchase a new one for one of the rooms. It's feebly beeps and continuous beeps when the battery was replaced, means a cry for change/help.
I'll have to follow the motto of '
