Buy these nine things to make your home safer

We all know that things happen that can damage or destroy your homes-natural disasters, fires, broken pipes.  Some can pose a risk to the safety of our family.  Check out these nine tools you can buy to avoid or minimize fires, leaks, floods or the impact of natural disasters:

1.  Smoke detectors - Having a working smoke detector is the most basic safety measure everyone should take to protect your family and your home.  According to Red Cross, having a smoke alarm can cut the risk of dying in a fire in half.  

2. Fire extinguishers - Smoke alarms alert us to the fire and a fire extinguisher can help us fight a small fire. Note the adjective...small fire.  According to the Red Cross, if the fire extinguisher does not immediately put the fire out, GET OUT OF THE HOUSE IMMEDIATELY.
