Maya Angelou wrote “Hoping for the best, prepared for the worst, and unsurprised by anything in between.” Good advice for Fall.  Let’s be optimistic about the months to come but prepare ourselves for large snowfalls, chilling freezes and any other occurrence. Then we may enjoy the months ahead in peace.

First Alert rechargeable fire extinguishers

In commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, the National Fire Protection Association declared the second week in October Fire Safety week in 1922. So, Longenecker’s Hardware encourages you to take every precaution and check to make sure you have enough fire extinguishers in your home and garage. First Alert rechargeable fire extinguishers are on sale this month in our store. 

First Alert battery-powered carbon monoxide detectors are also on special. Carbon monoxide poisoning can occur when you burn fireplaces, grills, stoves and furnaces and can build up and kill animals and humans who breathe it. As CO has no smell or taste, poisoning can happen quite quickly. The CDC recommends you install a battery-operated CO detector in your home, especially outside bedrooms. The First Alert CO detector is battery operated, making it portable and easy to use, even in the event of a power outage. When carbon monoxide levels become elevated, a loud 85-decibel alarm alerts you to the threat.
