I just read a blog post from a woman who had recently trained her children on how to respond to their smoke detector if it went off in the middle of the night. Shortly after they had gone through the training, it did happen that the alarm sounded after every one was asleep.

For Types I, II, III and IV, inspect the outer covers and surface for rips, holes and extensive mildew which will weaken the fabric or coating. Tug hard on all the straps and stitching to test for dry rot or sun damage. All connectors and buckles must work properly. If anything rips or stitching gives way, toss it! Don't try to fix it. If you use a Type V inflatable, inspect them according to the manufacturer's recommendations. Fresh inflator cylinders are cheap insurance.
Out on the town with office parties and general Christmas celebrations, pubs, restaurants and other venues are often crowded. Don't leave bags over the back of your chair and keep wallets and purses close to your body to make it more difficult for the pickpocket. Busy places make it easier for the sneak thief, so be alert at all times. Make prior arrangements as to how you will get home. Avoid any potential disturbances on the street. Stay with friends if you can. Avoid the temptation to take a minicab on the street even if you are having difficulty getting a cab - it is illegal for minicabs to take passengers who have not pre-booked. Make sure someone knows where you are going and what time you will be back. Don't drink too much - you could become a target for thieves.
