smoke alarm Smoke alarms play a vital role in keeping you and your family safe in your home.

Smoke alarms play a vital role in keeping you and your family safe in your home. Oftentimes, smoke can go undetected, therefore resulting in a large fire that could have been prevented. The safety of your family from a fire depends on a working smoke alarm. Here are some tips from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA):

  • A closed door may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of the home.
  • Smoke alarms should be interconnected. When one sounds, they all sound.
  • Large homes may need extra smoke alarms.
  • Test your smoke alarms at least once a month. Press the test button to be sure the alarm is working.
  • Today’s smoke alarms will be more technologically advanced to respond to a multitude of fire conditions yet mitigate false alarms.
  • When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside, and stay outside.
  • Replace all smoke alarms in your home every 10 years.
