Smoke Alarms are designed to give you an early warning of a fire. 82% of fires resulting in fatalities had no working Smoke Alarm.

Make sure to:

  • Have at least one Smoke Alarm (on the ceiling) on every level in your home
  • Test your smoke alarms at least once a week
  • Change the batteries every year
  • When the warning beep sounds change the battery immediately
