Smoke Detector 101

  • Smoke detectors can double your chance of survival in a fire.
  • Be sure your smoke detectors are working by checking each one on the first day of the month.
  • Know what your smoke detector sounds like- to ensure that your family will be able to react quickly in case of a fire.
  • Replace the battery once each year.
  • Smoke detectors are inexpensive to install and maintain – they should save your life of the life of someone you care for.
  • Install a smoke detector in each sleeping room and at lease one in every level of your home.
  • Since smoke rises, install them on the ceiling or on the wall 4 to 12 inches from the ceiling.
  • In rooms with pitched ceilings, mount the detector at or near the ceiling’s highest point.
  • Do not install a smoke detector too near a window, door or forced air register where drafts could interfere with the unit’s operation.
  • Develop and practice a home escape plan with two ways out of every room.
  • If your smoke detector sounds an alarm – get out of the house quickly and stay out.
  • Rally at your family’s designated meeting place.
