1. Test your Smoke & CO2 Alarms to ensure they are working. Press the red button. If it does not Beep, then change the batteries. Test again and if there is still no Beep, replace the unit.

2. Kids grow very fast. Check that your Child Car Seat is still appropriate for your child’s size and that it is adjusted correctly to ensure it is safe & comfortable for your child.

3. Test your Car Tyre Pressure to make sure they are correctly inflated in accordance with the manufacturers instructions. You may have to do this at the petrol station.  Keep a note of the correct pressures in your car.

4. Check to make sure that your Car Tyre Treads are the right depth and within the manufactures recommendations. Keep a note of the recommended depth in your car.
