Smoke Detectors

Everyone knows that you’re supposed to have smoke detectors in your home. However, not many people know how many you’re supposed to have or how often you should check them to make sure they are functioning appropriately. There should be a smoke detector in every living space of your home. Every bedroom, living room, den, office, dining room, kitchen, stairway, hall, etc should have a functioning smoke alarm. Those alarms should be checked every 30 days and the batteries replaced everytime you change the clocks for daylight savings time. It’s proven that smoke alarms save lives. In a situation where every seconds counts, the more notice you have that there’s a problem, the better chance you have of saving yourself and your family. Be proactive in your household’s safety and keep working smoke alarms!
