Is Your Home Prepared for Fire Safety?

October is National Fire Prevention Month, which may have you thinking about your home. Are you and your family as safe as can be, first in the prevention of fire, and second, in the event of one?

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), there were, on average, 354,400 home structure fires per year between 2013 and 2017. Unfortunately, there was also an annual average of 2,620 civilian deaths. Fires are dangerous, which is why it is a good idea to take measures to protect your home by installing proper fire safety and prevention equipment.

Your HVAC contractor can help you find the fire safety equipment you need.

You rely on your HVAC contractor to help keep your home comfort equipment running safely, effectively, and efficiently all year long. But did you know that they can very likely help you get the fire safety products you need, and install them for you, as well?

When they shop at their local Carrier®/Bryant® Distribution Center, they will find a variety of high-quality Kidde® fire safety products, made with your safety in mind.

Kidde offers a full line of the products you need to keep you and your family safe.

Ask your technician if the following Kidde products may be right for your home:

  • Smoke Alarms: Kidde provides battery-powered, wire-in, and wireless smoke alarm systems, featuring the latest in alarm technology.
  • CO Alarms: Having a carbon monoxide alarm installed on every level of your home can prevent tragedy – CO is colorless, odorless, and tasteless, and can be fatal.

  • Additionally, Kidde provides auxiliary devices for those with hearing or visual impairments, batteries, and more. Your technician can help you choose the right home safety products for your needs.
