Did you Change Your Smoke Detector Batteries?
Tue. Mar 12th 2013

The best fire prevention is fire education.

Firefighters know all too well that homes with working smoke alarms save lives or residents and firefighters. A smoke alarm with a dead or missing battery is the same as having no smoke alarm at all. Installing and maintaining residential fire sprinklers is also important to helping save lives. When both smoke alarms and fire sprinklers are present in a home, the risk of dying in a fire is reduced by 82 percent, when compared to a residence without either.

The Install. Inspect. Protect. Campaign is part of the U.S. Fire Administration’s effort to reduce fire deaths and injuries across the nation by urging residents to install smoke alarms in their homes and inspect and maintain them on a regular basis. Working smoke alarms and sprinklers save lives.

A working smoke alarm can help you and your family escape a deadly home fire. It can also help save the lives of firefighters who would otherwise have to risk their lives by searching a burning home for residents. A working smoke alarm continuously scans the air for smoke, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It never sleeps.

IT’S A FACT:

If your smoke alarm was installed before 3/12/2003 it needs to be replaced.
