The Best Smoke Alarms: Reviews & Comparisons of Top Rated Smoke Alarms

Given that every 85 seconds a home fire in starts somewhere in America, it makes sense to have a working smoke alarm installed in your home. It can help cut your risk of dying in a home fire by more than 50%. Even still, nearly 5 million households in America say they do not have a smoke detector in their home.

By simply installing a working smoke detector in your home, you and your family can be alerted to dangerous levels of heat and/or smoke in the event of a fire and escape to safety before something tragic happens. It’s recommended to have one alarm on each level of your home, and directly outside or in any bedrooms.

In fact, depending on where in America you live, it’s likely by law that you need to have a working smoke detector installed in your home and depending on your state, even the type of alarm might be specified. Increasingly, more and more states are making hardwired units mandatory, and with available battery backup, you can rest assured you’re always protected. Don’t forget to test monthly and if necessary, replace your batteries with each time change.

The 5 most surprisingly dangerous big cities in America

It’s the American dream – a decent job, family, and a home with a white picket fence. More often than not you’ve probably imagined that home in a safe, low-crime neighbourhood, especially if you have children. Chances are that idyllic safe life that you’re envisioning is happening somewhere in a small-town, away from the lights, noise and major crime of the big city – and with good reason.

While statistically-speaking, some big cities in America are surprisingly safe, and smaller cities generally tend to be safer, there are some big cities that are more dangerous than you’d expect. And while violent crime rates in the United States have decreased by half in the past 20 years, many Americans wrongly believe that it’s increased.

Here are some of the most surprisingly dangerous big cities in America.

  1. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  2. Dallas/Fort Worth, TX
  3. Atlanta, Georgia
  4. Miami, Florida
  5. Houston, Texas

Methodology

In order to create this list, we looked at the most recent survey by YouGov that found which big cities in the United States that Americans consider to be the safest.

Then, using data from the FBI’s 2012 uniform crime report, we explored the incidence of total reported violent crime rates including:

  • Murder
  • Assault
  • Rape
  • Robbery
  • Motor vehicle theft

We ranked each city according to the incidence of each of the above five crimes, with a heavier weight given to more violent and serious personal crimes such as murder and rape. We adjusted the total rate of crimes to per 100,000 to more easily compare. Totalling the scores when compared to their perceived level of safety, we then determined that the following cities are some of the most surprisingly dangerous big cities in all of America.

Philadelphia, PA

View: Museum to City Hall, Philadelphia

While the majority of Americans report that they believe Chicago is the most dangerous city in America, looking solely at the murder rate per capita, Philadelphia could be considered one of the most dangerous big cities in America with a murder rate of 21.5 per 100,000 people.

The majority of Americans ranked Philadelphia middle of the road in terms of considering it safe, with 48% of them considering it either very safe or fairly safe. The city of brotherly love also boasts an assault and robbery rate of more than 500 per 100,000 people.

Dallas/Fort Worth, TX

a Calatrava Bridge - Dallas TX

Considered the safest big city in America according to the YouGov survey, Dallas/Fort Worth is surprisingly unsafe, when you look at their violent crime rates. While the per capita murder rate is lower than the other cities on this list (9.8 per 100,000), the other crime rate markers were comparable to the other big cities on this list.

A rape incidence of 43.5 per 100,000 also bumped it up on our list. Given how safe Dallas/Fort Worth is considered by most Americans, it was a surprise to see its crime rates on par with many other of the dangerous big cities.

Atlanta, GA

Atlanta_Skyline_from_Buckhead

A total of 52% of Americans say they consider this southern city to be very safe or fairly safe, but the murder rate in the land of peaches isn’t so sweet.

With a murder rate of 18.9 per 100,000, it rivals Philadelphia for most surprisingly dangerous big city in America. This is before we even consider Atlanta’s alarmingly high motor vehicle theft rate, with 1178 per 100,000 – that’s nearly 1 in 100 – and assault incidence of 813 per 100,000.

Miami, FL

Matheson Hammock & Miami Skyline

The land of suntans, bikinis and Spring Break vacations is not as safe as the 44% of survey respondents who say they believe Miami is very safe or fairly safe believe it to be.

Third on this list based on its per capita murder rate of 15 per 100,000, Miami also has a high incidence of both assault and motor vehicle theft – 553 per 100,000 and 547 and 100,000 respectively. While it was middle of the road for perceived safety, its crime rates compared to the other big cities polled pushed it up into our top five.

Houston, TX

Houston City Hall

Another Texan city, Houston is perceived as being very safe or fairly safe by 56% of Americans but boasts a fairly high rate of both assault and motor vehicle theft – 520 per 100,000 and 600 per 100,000 respectively.

The incidence of rape in this city is middle of the line with a rate of 30 per 100,000, so while it is overall not the most dangerous city in America, the numbers are surprising given how safe the majority of Americans consider Houston to be.

The 50 Top Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless gas produced by combustion fumes originating from a stove or your home’s heating system, which can cause sudden illness or even death.

Common symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include: nausea, vomiting, headaches, weakness, dizziness, chest pain and confusion. If CO levels rise quickly or exposure continues, it can lead to unconsciousness and fatality.

However, by simply installing a carbon monoxide detector in your home, you and your family can be alerted to dangerous levels of carbon monoxide and escape to fresh air and safety before something tragic happens.

In fact, depending on where in America you live, it might already be the law that you need to have a carbon monoxide detector installed in your home – and more and more new home constructions are making it mandatory to install carbon monoxide detectors as well.

Given that carbon monoxide poisoning is one of the most common preventable causes of death in the United States, it makes sense to install a carbon monoxide detector in your home to help keep your family safe.

The Best Air Purifiers & Humidifiers: Reviews & Comparisons of Top Rated Models

The air you breathe is essential for survival, and air purifiers and humidifiers can help make that air not only cleaner, but also easier on your lungs.

Especially in the winter time as the temperature cools and humidity levels drop, reintroducing moisture into your home is essential for your comfort – not to mention any houseplants you might have. And filtering the air of any airborne pollutants can also help keep you and your family healthy during the winter months.

Most people find that a comfortable humidity level is somewhere between 40-60%, but our homes can get as low as 10% relative humidity in the winter time due to running our heating systems. Running a humidifier in your home during this time can help prevent dry skin, coughs and congestion and even reduce static electricity.
