Hear the BEEP where you SLEEP

Smoke AlarmRemember these tips when it comes to fire safety in your home:

  • Install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of the home, including the basement.  Larger homes may need more alarms.
  • For the best protection, install interconnected smoke alarms in your home.  When one sounds, they all sound.
  • Test alarms at least once a month by pushing the test button.
  • Replace all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old or if they do not sound when tested.
  • Some people, especially children and older adults may need help to wake up.  Make sure someone will wake them if the smoke alarms sounds.
  • When the smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside.  Go to your outside meeting place.
  • Call the fire department from a cellphone or a neighbor's phone.  Stay outside until the fire department says it's safe to go back inside.
