Thank you for suggesting that you should make sure and plan two ways out of a room in case of a fire. My husband and I are building a house and want to make sure we are getting everything we need for fire safety. I'll have to look into finding the best alarm system for our house.

I had no idea that heating and cooking are some of the leading causes of fire in homes. I will have to keep my eyes out for those things and make sure that there is no possibility for fire.
