Fire Safety in Your Home or Business

Smoke alarms
Smoke alarms save lives. Smoke alarms that are 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 and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out.

Here’s what you need to know!

  • A closed door may slow the spread of smoke, heat and fire
  • Test your smoke alarms at least once a month by pressing the test button to be sure the alarm is working
  • Install smoke alarms on every level of the home and outside of every sleeping area
  • Never disable a smoke detector for any reason. Instead, correct the cause of false activation
  • Replace your smoke detector batteries when you turn your clocks back in October of each year
  • Replace all smoke alarms in your home every 10 years
  • When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside
