#HomeSafety for The Holidays at #DadChat #Christmas

Category: #DadChat


It’s the Holiday Season, Christmas-time, and everyone is excited and happy. However, during this festive time there are often many home safety disasters as well as those we always hear about, on the road. This important issue is often lost amidst all the “cheer.” #DadChat will tackle Home Safety this Thursday, December 11 at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. ET, along with sponsor Kidde, and we’ll ask the tough questions, and help YOU have a safe as well as happy holiday season. We also have some special giveaways from Kidde that you can win at this week’s #DadChat!


About Kidde, by Kidde: Founded by Walter Kidde in 1917, a pioneer in early smoke detection and fire suppression, Kidde is the world’s largest manufacturer of fire safety products. Each day, we work to expand upon our legacy of innovation, providing advanced solutions to protect people and property from fire and related hazards. You can find our products in homes and businesses around the globe. And while we’re a leading manufacturer of fire safety products, there’s more to safety than equipment and technology. From collaboration with builders and dealers to community initiatives to partnerships with non-profits, Kidde is committed to working together to create a safer world. 

Prizes to be given away – you WILL have to earn them – are:

Kidde Kitchen Fire Extinguisher: the only special purpose fire extinguisher that is UL-listed for residential cooking equipment. It delivers the firefighting agent at a high volume and low velocity to reduce cooking oil splashing, and the pressure gauge shows the unit is ready for use. Its non-toxic and non-corrosive agent makes clean-up safe and easy.
