Every home should at least have one working smoke alarm in every sleeping room and every level. Smoke alarms are a great way to prevent a tragic incident within seconds!

A smoke alarm is a detector the detects smoke in the room and makes an extremely loud noise to warn the person there is a sign of smoke and attention is needed. This is great in case you are asleep or have a child sleeping in the other room.

Safety tips:

  • Test all smoke alarms at least once a month.
  • Smoke alarms should be either on the ceiling or high on the wall. (Large homes may need extra alarms)
  • People who are hard of hearing or deaf can use special smoke alarms with either strobe lights or bed shakers rather than an alarming noise.
  • Smoke alarms are an important part of a home fire escape plan.
