Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives!

8/6/2018

Almost 2,500 people die in home fires every year in the United States. Most of these people lived in homes that do not have working smoke alarms.

 

Smoke alarms save lives, and keep your family safe. Put working smoke alarms in your home and keep them working!

 

Here are a few reasons why you should make sure your Smoke Alarm is working:

 

  • Smoke is poisonous.
  • Smoke alarms make a loud noise when there is smoke in your house to warn your family.
  • Smoke alarms wake you up if you are sleeping during a fire.

 

Some tips for your families smoke alarms:

 

  • Put a smoke alarm on every level of your home and outside each sleeping area.
  • Put smoke alarms inside every bedroom.
  • Smoke goes up, so make sure to put smoke alarm on ceiling or high on the wall.
  • Test your smoke alarms. Push the test button and you will hear a loud noise. If you don't hear the noise you need a new battery or new alarm.
  • Make sure the smoke alarm always has a good batter. Most alarms need a new battery every year.
  • Smoke alarms with long-life batteries will work for up to 10 years.
  • Get a new smoke alarm every 10 years. (Some manufacturers recommend every 7 years.)
