I do! And when I travel, safety and security in the hotels I am staying in is often a concern of mine. In particular when it comes to fire-safety.
It already happened many times that I spend time in a nice resort abroad where I notice big fire hazards right away before I even enter my room. Well, here goes my nice vacation…
I am talking about blocked emergency exists, defective or entirely absent fire alarms, faulty wiring, very old fire extinguishers where it’s almost certain they won’t work any longer.
But I have a solution to calm my nerves when I am abroad: I always carry a portable smoke detector with me. With a smoke detector in my luggage, I always have some piece of mind in those hotels where their fire safety is severely lacking which are quite a lot.
But of course I always try to make sure the the hotel is modern and up to standard in this regard before I even book a room for my holidays. Holidays are a time where I want to relax and not want to worry about fire hazards and other dangers.
If you are from the United Kingdom and would like some more information about fire safety, I recommend that you look into an outdoor smoke detector alarm as they can greatly increase the safety of your home or business much better than an ordinary smoke alarm.
