Amazon: Kidde Dual Sensor Smoke Alarm $30.09 Shipped!
October 7th-13th is National Fire Prevention Week! This year’s theme is “Have 2 Ways Out!” stressing the importance of a family escape plan in case of a fire or other emergency. Now is a great time to check all of the smoke detectors in your home to make sure they are properly working!
Smoke alarms are an important part of a home fire escape plan. When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. Working smoke alarms give you early warning so you can get outside quickly.
Fact #1: Roughly two thirds of home fire deaths happen in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.
Fact #2: Working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in reported home fires in half.
A few fire safety tips…
- INSTALL smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement.
- Larger homes may need ADDITIONAL smoke alarms to provide enough protection.
- For the best protection, INTERCONNECT all smoke alarms so when one sounds they all sound.
- An IONIZATION smoke alarm is generally more responsive to flaming fires and a PHOTOELECTRIC smoke alarm is generally more responsive to smoldering fires. For the best protection, both types of alarms or combination ionization and photoelectric alarms (also known as dual sensor alarms) are recommended.
- Smoke alarms should be INSTALLED away from the kitchen to prevent false alarms. Generally, they should be at least 10 feet (3 meters) from a cooking appliance.
- REPLACE all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old.
