that are likely to cause slips, trips and falls. Look for and repair any loose
wires, rugs, cluttered floors or dimly lit stairwells to maximize your family’s
safety. The most common cause of injuries in the home is falls, so don’t

Water is one of the most dangerous things in your house. If

water leak detector or flood sensor. This will help prevent small leaks from
becoming pricey floods.
