Adapted from leading consumer protection expert Nancy Harvey Steorts' popular "Safe Living in a Dangerous World" (Capital, 2003), "Your Home Safe Home" takes you on a room-by-room inspection of a house with checklists of safety tips and things to watch for. Follow the advice on these pages to guarantee the safety of everyone in your family-from the youngest to the oldest. Pass it along to a new owner, or use it to judge whether you want to buy a particular house-based on its safety. As an added bonus, "Your Home Safe Home" gives tips for safe food handling, holiday celebrations, weather protection, even disaster planning.
In the current real estate market, the safety of your home can be a real selling advantage. And for those who are looking to buy, and those who have chosen to stay, home safety is imperative.
Like smoke detectors and first aid kits, this comprehensive book should be part of every family's home saftey arsenal. In Your Home Safe Home, Nancy Steorts not only reaffirms her role as our nation's safety ambassador, she shows us how we can all become our own safety ambassadors. Her latest book is an encyclopedia of tips for keeping our homes and lives safe.
