Smoke alarms

It’s the sound of survival.

Smoke alarms save lives. If there’s a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast and smoke alarms give you time to get out. Install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of your home. Test your smoke alarms every month. When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside — and stay outside. Replace all smoke alarms in your home every 10 years.

Almost two-thirds of home fire deaths happen because there are no smoke alarms or they don’t work. Having a working smoke alarm in a home cuts in half the chances of dying in a fire.

And that’s smart safety!
