The batteries in your carbon monoxide detectors and smoke detectors should be replaced. Don’t wait until you hear the “low battery” alarm sound before you replace them. Do this at least twice a year. Remember to always perform a test run at least once a month to ensure that they are working properly.
Check your fire extinguishers and ensure that needle on the pressure gauge is pointed in the green. If not, then you should replace it. Check the hose, nozzle, pin, and handle and make sure that there are not loose parts or damages.
Emergency Preparedness Kit
Consider getting an emergency preparedness kit for your family. This may include everything from flares and water testers to pocket knives. Hopefully, you won’t need it anytime soon, but it’s wise to have one ready. Make sure that the stocks and supplies are replenished or functioning every year.
Inspection of Doors and Windows
Inspect windows and doors if there are any drafts and leaks. Make sure that your home is energy-efficient. You might want to consider having draft-dodgers or seals.
Check Fluid Levels
Ensure that the maintenance schedules of your water heaters and furnaces are on schedule. Make necessary appointments for checkups, repairs, and maintenance.
Make sure your insurance is up-to-date. Be reminded as to when you need to renew your policies. If you don’t have any policy yet, consider getting one. It will not only help you in times of need, but it will also give you a peace of mind all year round as long as you have the policy you need.
