Check Your Smoke Alarms

Test Your Smoke Alarms 03 2018

Test ALL of your smoke alarms once a month; smoke alarms can only save you if they are working. According to the NFPA:

  • Three of every five home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms (38%) or no working smoke alarms (21%). 
  • Smoke alarms provide an early warning of a fire, giving people additional escape time. In 2009-2013, smoke alarms sounded in more than half (53%) of the home1 fires reported to U.S. fire departments.
  • Dead batteries caused one-quarter (24%) of the smoke alarm failures.
