As I look over this list, I see a lot of things I could/should do to make this a safer home for not only Kathy and me, but for visiting friends and family as well.A quick once-over of the items on this list may improve the safety and security of your home and could protect your family and friends. It is important to periodically pay attention to these things because things change over time.
Here's what I'd like you to do:
