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!

STEP 2: CHECK YOUR SMOKE DETECTORS

  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.
