Fire Prevention Month 2016

Smoke Detector

Most people know that smoke detectors save lives. Yet only a small percentage of people know how old their smoke alarms are, or how often they need to be replaced.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), “survey data shows that the public has many misconceptions about smoke alarms, which may put them at increased risk in the event of a home fire.”

Properly maintained smoke alarms could save your life and the lives of your loved ones by providing the chance to escape a home fire.
