For What Matters Most Trust First Alert Carbon Monoxide Alarms

This post sponsored by First Alert, all views and opinions are my own. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. 
These are the two faces that hold my heart. I feel so blessed to have them call me Mom. My husband and I occasionally sit and discuss all the our hopes and dreams for the kids and the ways we can make things better for them. Their safety and well being is at the top of the list. Living in our two-story home we were sure to get baby gates and cover all of our outlets when the Booper was starting to crawl. You can find all kinds of great baby safety products, but one thing parents might forget is Carbon Monoxide alarms. CO poisoning is responsible for an average of 450 deaths and more than 20,000 emergency room visits in the U.S. each year. (American Medical Association) Why would you risk losing what matters most when First Alert makes it so easy to get the CO alarm you need?
Carbon Monoxide is sometimes referred to as the silent killer. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, CO poisoning is the number one cause of accidental poisoning in the United States.When I was a teen we knew a family that had to be hospitalized for CO poisoning from a faulty furnace. It was scary that they had no idea when they went to bed that night that they were breathing in the toxic fumes. Thankfully, they had plans with someone who came knocking on their door early in the morning and realized something was wrong and called 911. If they had only installed a CO alarm that horrible experience could have been avoided. Thank goodness their story had a happy ending, but that was the day my parents went out to buy CO alarms for our home. 
First Alert wants to offer these tips for avoiding CO poisoning. 
  • All fuel-burning (gas, oil and coal) devices should be serviced by a qualified technician every year. Generators,charcoal grills, camp stoves and other similar devices should only be used outdoors.
  • Running vehicles inside an attached garage, even if the door is open, is hazardous, as CO can leak into the home.
  • CO alarms should be installed outside each sleeping area (such as in a hallway outside the bedroom) and on every level of the home, including the basement. Battery-operated CO alarms or plug-in alarms with battery backup are preferred in case of power failure.
  • Call 911 and leave the home immediately if the CO alarm sounds.

As busy as families are these days I can see how it's so easy to forget to replace batteries in your alarms, but First Alert has made it easy with their 10-YEAR SEALED MULTI-FUNCTION CARBON MONOXIDE ALARM. This alarm will even let you know when it's time to replace it with a new alarm! It features a multi-function, backlit digital display, and the peak level feature retrieves the highest concentration of carbon monoxide measured, it's powered by a sealed, ten year lithium batteries, and the compact design allows for easy tabletop or wall mount placement. This alarm meets UL2034 standards and backed by 10 year limited warranty. 

Don't wait for tragedy to strike someone you know to make your home safe for your family. Visit First Alert and update the alarms around your home, and consider giving new parents a CO alarm as a shower gift!
