Keep your family safe with a working smoke alarm in every bedroom.
Did you know that roughly half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., when most people are asleep?
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. In fact, having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half!
When it comes to smoke alarms,
it’s about “location, location, location."
The key message of this year's Fire Prevention Week campaign, October 4-10, is to install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of your home, including the basement. Larger homes may need more alarms. Visit NFPA's Smoke Alarm Central for all of the information you need to make sure your home smoke alarms are properly installed and maintained.
Fire Prevention Week is an annual campaign sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)
