Smoke Alarms Save Lives!
🕰️ Change your clocks, check your batteries! When you ‘spring forward’ it’s also a good time to check your smoke alarms too…
➡️ All smoke alarms, including hard-alarms should be replaced after 10 years because they lose their ability to detect fire or smoke over time.
➡️ Smoke alarms with non-replaceable 10-year batteries are designed to be effective for up to 10 years. If the alarm chirps , warning that the battery is low , replace the entire smoke alarm right away.
➡️ Smoke alarms with any other type of battery need a new battery at least once a year. If the alarm chirps, warning the battery is low , replace the battery right away. If it still chirps, replace the entire smoke alarm.
The risk of dying in a home fire is cut in half in homes with working smoke alarms.
Three out of five home fire deaths result from fires in properties without working smoke alarms.
More than one-third (38 percent) of home fire deaths result from fires in which no smoke alarms are present.
