Make Life Easier: Vibrating Smoke Alarms, Glow-in-the-Dark Pets

separator Fire and the Hearing Impaired
If you’re hard of hearing, would you hear your smoke detector in the event of a fire, especially if you’re in a sound sleep? The United States Fire Administration has these words of advice for people with hearing impairments:

  • Call your local fire department to find out whether you would qualify for free installation of a fire alarm that makes your bed vibrate, or for one that emits flashing lights.
  • Install smoke detectors on every floor of your home.
  • Make sure you have an escape plan in case of fire
  • Tell your fire department to keep your special needs on file

Making it Easier to Spot Spot
Do you ever get up in the middle of the night for a bathroom break and walk right into your sleeping dog? There’s a remedy for that.

Co-Leash, a pet product company, has created new glow-in-the-dark leash and collar combined. All you have to do is expose the product to any light source for five to 30 minutes. It’ll glow for up to 12 hours. According to the Co-Leash Web site, “The leash neatly wraps around the collar and allows you to grab control at any time.” Co-leash sells for $19.95.
