Smoke Detectors Are No Joke!

Did you know nearly two-thirds of all fire deaths happen in homes without working smoke detectors?  Is your smoke detector more than 10 years old?  Replace it!


  1. Install smoke detectors in every bedroom.
  2. For best protection use both ionization and photoelectric detectors.
  3. Place a smoke detector about 10 feet away from cooking appliances.
  4. Replace batteries twice a year.
  5. Test smoke detectors once-a-month.

Working smoke detectors give you an early warning so you can get out quickly.
