Vacation Rental Safety

1. Go find the water heater. Be sure to look in the basement or a closet.
2. Install your compact carbon monoxide, battery operated detector right outside the room between the water heater and the furnace.
2. Locate the fire extinguisher, and be familiar with how to operate it and remember where it's located.
3. Plan a fire escape and locate all of the exits and the smoke alarms.
