[ARCHIVED] October 3-9 is Fire Prevention Week! Check your smoke alarms!
Did you know three out of five home fire deaths result from fires in properties without working smoke alarms? They don't last forever. They should be replaced every 10 years. And make sure your smoke alarms work. Your family is not safe if they can’t hear the alarm.
- Choose interconnected smoke alarms, so when one sounds, they all sound.
- Put smoke alarms inside and outside each bedroom and sleeping area. Put alarms on every level of the home.
- Test smoke alarms every month and replace 9-volt smoke alarm batteries at least once every year.
- When you hear a smoke alarm, you may have less than 2 minutes to get everyone outside and safe.
