Elementor #694

Most fatal fires occur at night. Every home needs
working smoke alarms to provide an early warning.
Install smoke alarms in all sleeping rooms, hallways that
lead to sleeping areas, basements and each additional
level of your home.
Smoke alarms should be mounted on the ceiling 4”
from the wall; wall mounts should be 4-12” from
the ceiling. Do not install near draft areas (windows,
vents.). Call your local fire department if you are
unsure about placement.
A good time to remember to check your smoke alarm
and change the batteries is when you change your
clocks twice a year as daylight savings time begins and
ends.
Prepare and practice an escape plan! Crawl low under
smoke. Plan where to meet outside. Once you’re out,
Stay out!
Remember, almost every day a smoke alarm saves
somebody’s life.
