Smoke Alarm Awareness
The National Fire Protection Agency reports that 3 out of 5 home fire deaths that occur, the homes had non-working smoke alarms. Homes with no smoke alarms at all resulted in more than 1/3 of home fire deaths.
Fortunately, having a working smoke alarm cuts your risk of dying in a home fire by half. Age matters so check the date on your smoke alarm. Smoke alarms should be replaced every 10 years. Every bedroom needs a working smoke alarm, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of the home including the basement.
Test your alarms at least once a month by pushing the test button.
