Biscuits and Smoke Detectors
It’s been an incredibly busy day! You’re finally sitting with your feet up. Feels so good. Dinner is in the crock-pot, table is set and the biscuits that are baking smell soooo good! Your IPad is sitting beside you just calling out to you. Just one last quick game of Candy Crush on Facebook before dinner is ready! Only a minute, or 5? Really, what could it hurt. It would be so relaxing!
BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP!!!
There goes that smoke detector! Ugh! That dreaded sound when it’s only a little bit of smoke! “Why does that need to be so close to the kitchen?”, you ask yourself. You wonder what kind of Brainiac thought that was a great idea. Don’t they know that it will go off and interrupt my relaxation?
We’ve all done this. Thankfully this time you could respond quickly and get the biscuits out of the oven, even if they are a bit over done.
According to the NFPA, (National Fire Protection Association) 43% of home fires start in the kitchen. This is also the number one cause of home fires. Smoke alarms can be an early detection of what could become a very serious fire. Where there is smoke, there is fire.
Placement of smoke detectors in the home is very important! The NFPA suggests smoke detectors should be installed on the ceiling or high on a wall for detection of the first traces of smoke. It is suggested to have one in every bedroom, and at least one on every floor/level of your home, including basements and hallways. And yes, you should have one right outside your kitchen… just in case your quick little game of Candy Crush turns into a half an hour and burnt biscuits!
The bottom line of this story is that smoke detectors do save lives. Although, at times, we do see them as a nuisance noise, they are extremely important. Be sure you do have them in the right locations, and by all means…do not take the batteries out! They can’t do their job if you disable them.

Cindy, I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for helping us with our last two transactions. You were so kind to call us while you were on vacation and we needed your assistance. Today with adding a new vehicle you made the process quick and painless!”
I have really enjoyed having Rob as an insurance man. His friendly and helpful attitude is always appreciated. When we moved into our new home and had a glitch, Rob went above and beyond to insure that we could move on time. I’ve never forgotten his “can do” for our family.
We moved from the area, and still do business with her – and my daughter does as well.
I have been here for a long long time. I’m very pleased with my insurance company (Erie/Covenant). I will never have to get anyone else.
I appreciate greatly the help you have given us. Never before have I seen an insurance agent go to such lengths to not only get our business, but to also understand our business and work together with us to protect our interests. You’re good people and we are happy to be a customer.
I deal with Bonnie and she is great. She goes above and beyond and is very helpful when questions arise. She is also very friendly and courteous. J Spangler
