Our Smoke Alarms Helped Save My House

I have an urgent favor to ask, but first I need to tell you a personal story.

Last year a fire started in my home, it started away from sight in the garage.

Fortunately, we had installed some new advanced smoke and fire detectors just a few weeks before. They worked exactly how they were supposed to and the person who was staying in our home heard the alarm and called the fire department.

So when the company who made those very smoke alarms contacted me for help in getting the word out about a contest they were in, I was more than happy to help in any way I could.

MCND401 - Room

The contest is called Get On the Shelf and it’s through Walmart. The company is trying to get both their 2-1 Smoke and Fire Smart Alarm (the one that helped save our home), and their new 2-1 Smart Alarm for helping protect against carbon monoxide and natural gas (methane) into Walmart stores. The contest pits different products against each other and asks regular people like you and me to vote to help decide which products gets in.

Voting just says you feel the product deserves shelf space at Walmart, there is no obligation to buy, and you can vote every day. The contest ends midnight, Sept 2, so if you wouldn’t mind hopping over and clicking your vote for the cause, it would be much appreciated. Lets get these great products on the shelves at Walmart, so others can benefit from the technology that helped protect my own home. Please don’t wait, the voting ends soon. Just click on the links in the paragraph above to find their voting pages. Voting is through facebook only. There’s a video you can watch to find out more about each product, but you don’t have to watch the video each time you vote. Just click on the “vote for this” tab each day you come back to vote.

And thanks truly ahead of time for the favor.
