SMOKE ALARMS SAVE LIVES. Smoke alarms, when properly installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries. If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast, you need smoke alarms to alert you ultimately providing time to get out safely.
By state law, all homes are required to have smoke alarms on each level, and within 15 feet of sleeping areas. Install a smoke alarm in each sleeping room. Inner-connect your alarms; when one sounds, they all sound. Test your alarms once a month, and replace your alarm in your home every 10 years.
