I was just curious to see if any of you had been invited as a couple (you and your DH) to one of the fire safety dinners where you get a free dinner at Magleby's for listening to a fire safety presentation.
They don't sell you anything at the meeting but if you sign up and let a rep come to your home, then they give you fire stickers (reflective stickers for occupied bedrooms) and a bat (to break a window to exit in a fire) then they try to sell you on buying fire alarms (smoke, heat), fire extinguishers, carbon monoxide detectors, radon detectors, etc.
If you sign up, it's a same night install. From the meeting, we were told that smoke detectors have a 55.8% fail rate (it even states it in the manuals). They also noted that the carbon monoxide detectors have been required in all new homes built as of 2007 and that ionization smoke detectors are no longer allowed in Texas in new homes.
Anybody have any thoughts on the product? The company dealing Master guard is out of Saratoga Springs but I can't remember their name....
