[ARCHIVED] Fire Prevention Week - Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm.

NFPA’s Fire Prevention Week

LISTEN for the sound of the smoke alarm.

Smoke alarms are the first line of defense in a fire by alerting everyone in time to get out safely. In fact, having smoke alarms in your home cuts your risk of dying in a fire in half.

Make sure your home is adequately equipped with working smoke alarms by taking the following steps:

  • Install a smoke alarm on every level of your home, in each bedroom, and near all sleeping areas.
  • Test smoke alarms monthly to make sure they’re working. Replace smoke alarms that are more than 10 years old.
  • Interconnect your smoke alarms so that when one smoke alarm sounds, they all do.
