Smoke Alarms for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Did you know that if you are Deaf or Hard of Hearing…or you know someone that is… the local fire departments will give you, or your friend, free smoke detectors?  There are smoke alarms that use light or vibration to alert the resident.  As people age, they often lose the ability to hear the high pitched sound of a smoke alarm, so there are alarms that emit a mixed, low-pitch sound that is easier to hear.

Here is a link for some local fire departments that provide this service:

Overland Park
Kansas City, KS
Kansas City, MO

Low, low rates!

In case you were wondering if rates have finally come up…they have not!


Did you know that when you go to sell your house, chances are great that you will have to treat for termites?  If there is any evidence of termites, even if they are not active right now, and no treatment is found, you MUST treat.  It is part of the real estate contract and it is not negotiable.  All loans require a termite inspection and those pesky termites are everywhere! does a great job with treatment and they are one of the least expensive out there that I have found.  Check them out here if you want to be proactive and treat or you know you already have those nasty wood eaters in your house!
