How can I protect my children from chemicals in the garage?

Garages and Fire Prevention

Many toxic chemicals are found in the average home garage. In order to protect your children, consider taking preventative measures to avoid catastrophe. Something as simple as installing a fire detector is a step toward proper garage safety. Carbon monoxide detectors are also a good investment, as that gas is quite common in a car garage. Depending on the size of your garage, you should have at least one fire extinguisher as well. A good rule of thumb is to have one fire extinguisher per car in your garage. And don't forget to get them routinely checked!
