  1. Jane….awesome information as I never even think about this!

    And it reminds me that after my dryer caught fire, I had to disconnect my smoke detector as it was wired to my alarm system which I don’t use anymore.

    I’ll be off to Home Depot this weekend for BOTH of these important safety features you should have in your home!
