Fire safety and autism. Instant fear. I know that getting my 3 adult daughters out of the house quickly would be impossible. And they would never escape on their own. We could practice drills daily (we don't) and they would still perish. Sounds grim? It is. It's autism. We have working smoke detectors. We have a safety sticker on the front door for emergency personnel - fire, police, EMT. I have a standard fire extinguisher on my kitchen counter. It's bulky and in a nighttime fire would be useless, even though it's just down the hall in my small ranch house. These wee StaySafe bottles could mean the difference between getting out and perishing. I have two in my room in my nightstand, one on the mantle of my wood fireplace and one in my kitchen next to its clunky big brother. Be aware, they are not childproof. That's not an issue in my home, but could be in yours. They are 20% off for Amazon Prime members today, and AofA is an Amazon Affliate to share books and other products that might help our families.
