Are you wanting to teach your children about fire safety?
Natural disasters seem to be at an all time high. With it being National preparedness month I am learning more than ever that you cannot plan on the “when” of a natural disaster but you can prepare now. Fire safety became more important than ever this year when we lost our home to a fire. So much good has come through the kindness of others and I have learned so much in our journey. I am going to be sharing with you my story and safety tips in the coming month. This is something I have been looking forward to doing for a long time and National Preparedness month seems like the best time to get it started.
