Hello Ladies and Gentlemen and Everything In Between:
Check Alarm Batteries
- Install a carbon monoxide battery operated near your bedrooms.
- Check or change the batteries in your carbon monoxide detectors at least twice a year.
- Install smoke alarms on every floor of your home.
- Test smoke alarms monthly to ensure they work properly. For smoke alarms that use regular alkaline batteries, replace the batteries at least once a year. For smoke alarms that use lithium (long-life) batteries, replace the entire alarm unit every 10 years or sooner if it chirps or stops working.
- Make a disaster plan. Know where 2 meet other family members in case of an emergency.
Be Smoke Free
- Refrigerate leftovers promptly. Illness-producing bacteria can grow quickly at room temperature, so refrigerate foods that tend to spoil faster (like fruits and vegetables, milk, eggs, and meats) within two hours. When in doubt, throw it out.
- Wash hands, utensils, surfaces, and cutting boards after they have been in contact with raw meat or poultry and before they touch another food.
- Wash produce before you eat it.
- Take a few extra minutes to make sure meat, poultry, and eggs are cooked thoroughly.
- Report suspected foodborne illnesses to your local health department.
- Check CDC’s food safety website and foodsafety.gov, your gateways to federal food safety information.

Dopamine can be present in both early-stage and long-term romantic love.
