Smoke Alarms

 

Smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries

  • Smoke alarms save lives. If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out. Having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half. Almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.

Here's what you need to know!

  • 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

Smoke alarms by the numbers

  • In 2007-2011, smoke alarms sounded in half of the home fires reported to U.S. fire departments.

  • Three of every five home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.

  • No smoke alarms were present in more than one-third (37%) of the home fire deaths.
