Hi, my name is Jessica May. I’m a mom of 7 crazy kiddos, baker, blogger, and much more! I love Swimming in the river, hiking the Hill Country, paddling, tubing, surfing, flying, and spending time with my family at home or on the road. We live on a small farm in Boerne, Texas.

Farmhouse Chic With First Alert Tabletop CO Alarm I Hill Country Homestead Texas

Thank you First Alert for sponsoring this post. Know CO!

Back to School season with a large family and everyone doing their own education thing keeps us busy and on our toes. Transitioning from summer to the school year always seems to be a shock and a sudden rush of activity and excitement in contrast to our lazy laid back summer days. Even so, whether I'm enjoying the relaxation of summer or checking things off of a never-ending school list, I'm always for products that work smarter not harder for me. Air quality is not something that I think about often as I am going through my daily tasks at the house. With First Alert Portable Tabletop CO Alarm I rest assured that Brady, the kids and I are always protected from carbon monoxide at home or on the go!

Carbon monoxide is particularly concerning for me because it’s silent. Any fuel-burning device can produce CO, and there is a lot of those here on the farm! I had a close call with CO in our home as a family. I am so thankful for modern technology like the First Alert Portable Tabletop CO Alarm that helps alert when there is a threat and eliminates the dangers of leaving CO undetected in the household or living space. The stylish design of the portable tabletop alarm fits right in with our farmhouse chic kitchen decor, and the LED temperature display is a welcome addition to our farmhouse table school lessons. It helps me to be able to glance and see what the indoor temperature is quickly, and I can rest assured that the air is clean and safe when the First Alert is on the table.

What I love about the First Alert monitor is that it can go on the table, on the wall or on the road. I can pack it in our luggage and use it when we travel. The stylish CO alarm can detect dangerous levels of carbon monoxide in places that we stay on vacation to ensure the air is clean and safe for the family. The digital display is backlit with blue and displays the room temperature, which is also helpful to me working in the kitchen with the kids. It sits so easily on the tabletop and can be moved around the house easily. The monitor comes with a 10-year sealed battery so no need for a replacement for ten years! The monitor works right out of the box, no setup or installation required, which works well for my lifestyle!

Adding the First Alert Portable Tabletop CO Alarm to the shopping list is a safe idea. It fits right in on a shopping list or a school list. When I have my family gathered around the table for a conversation, a meal, or a lesson, I know the air quality is clean and safe.

Knowing at a glance, what the temperature in the room is helpful to me throughout the day also! Carbon Monoxide may not be something we think about often because it is almost undetectable, so education is vital! Here are some other Carbon Monoxide safety tips for reviewing in the meantime! Happy School Year!
