"Prevention is better than cure. " While there's no fire yet, prevent it and stay safe. Great thing to find out this safety service which helps you to be connected to your safety network or be directly routed to the nearest 911 if you have an emergency. Just press the panic button, then there it is. But, it's not just that, there are much more features that you can take advantage. Indeed it's aiding, to see, sight it here: http://bit.ly/1576J0
