Disclosure: I received a Kidde Worry Free Kitchen Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm for the sole purpose of this review. No other compensation was given. All opinions are 100% my own.
Did you know every 20 seconds, a fire department responds to a fire somewhere in the United States? That amounts to the fact that once a minute a fire occurs in a structure. It is also sad to know that 700-900 people may lose their life due to fires from cigarettes, cooking, or fireplaces.
Some people have pyrophobia – the fear of fire or getting burned. Me? I cannot say I am fearful of either one really. That is not to say I want it to ever happen to me or anyone in my family though. In fact, it is one of my wife’s biggest fears. I tend to worry more about a silent killer like smoke or carbon monoxide. As a parent, especially a dad and head of household, I just want to be able to take care of my wife and children the best way possible.

One way to try to prevent these senseless deaths is to install a smoke and carbon monoxide alarm. In fact, I was able to install one downstairs in the kitchen of our house recently.
