***VERY Important EVERYONE Reads This***

Do you check your Smoke detectors, and make sure they are working properly?? Fire Extinguisher near by in the kitchen?

**This is not a question so much, but a friendly reminder. After several house fires here in my area, I wanted Cafe Mom's to double check their own home detectors and be on the safe side.**

Just passing the word around is all........better to be safe my friends! 

Ask your friends as well to check theirs as a friendly reminder!!

  • I set fire to some fritos once. Apparently putting them on "broil" is a bad idea...whoops. We went and bought a fire extinguisher the next day. We haven't needed it since, but I'd rather have it and not need it.

  • You are welcome.....I read where a CM members family member lost everything days before Christmas and they lost everything....and their pets, but the great thing is they got out! We've had several fires here in my home town and it made me check ours to make sure all was OK, and I put new batteries in to be on the safe side.

    Just wanted to remind everyone......
