Fire Safety Tips: Smoke Alarms
Fire injuries and deaths can be prevented. A few easy steps can save your life!
  • Install a smoke alarm on every floor of your home, even the basement.
  • Install a smoke alarm outside every sleeping area. Ideally, install smoke alarms in every sleeping area, too.
  • Test smoke alarms monthly.
  • Change the batteries at least once a year-maybe at Daylight Savings Time or on your birthday.
  • Teach children what your smoke alarm sounds like and what to do if they hear it-get out and crawl low under smoke.
  • Never disable a smoke alarm (like for cooking smoke). Consider alarms with hush buttons.
  • Never remove a smoke alarm battery for some other use, like a radio or video game.
  • Keep smoke alarms clean. Vacuum them often.
  • Replace smoke alarms after 10 years.
  • Choose smoke alarms that come with 10-year batteries.
