    Smoke Detectors should be installed near every bedroom, living room, hallways and basement. Do not install in kitchens or garages.

    • Smoke Detectors Save Lives

    • Smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries.

    • Smoke alarms save lives. If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out. Having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half. Almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.
