Charlotte Police Officer Saves Family from House Fire

charlotte-house-fireHere’s a story that caught our eye the other day. A Charlotte, NC police officer saved the lives of two people by letting them know that their house was on fire.

This is a story that we loved because it had a happy ending. Officer Vargas is definitely a hero.

But it also made us sigh a little bit, because clearly this family did not have working smoke detectors. We don’t know if they pulled them out of the wall in a fit of pique one night, if the batteries were dead, or if they just didn’t have one.

But if Officer Vargas hadn’t been in exactly the right place at exactly the right time, this story would have had a very different ending than it did.

Since not all of us can count on a timely rescue like this, please, please get working smoke detectors into your home.

And if you’re frustrated by low battery test noises, or aren’t good about remembering to change the batteries, please consider monitored fire protection from JSB Security.

We hard wire the smoke detectors so you never have to change the battery again. The smoke detectors include built in heat-detectors, which means they only respond to real fires (and not the dinner you burnt last week).

They eliminate virtually every annoyance that comes along with smoke detectors. In addition, they make a nice, ear splitting noise when they do finally go off.

Nobody in your house is sleeping through that.

Even if someone cannot or does not hear the alarm you will have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that the fire department is on its way seconds after that alarm goes off. The fire will get put out faster. People and pets will be rescued faster.

Fire protection should not rely on the kindness of strangers. If you live in Charlotte, NC, contact JSB Security for your free quote on monitored fire protection today. It is the best thing that you can do to protect your home and family this year.
