HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SMOKE ALARMS:
•A closed door may slow the spread of smoke, heat and fire. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of the home.
•Smoke alarms should be interconnected. When one sounds, they all sound.
•Large homes may need extra smoke alarms.
•Test your smoke alarms at least once a month. Press the test button to be sure the alarm is working.
•There are two kinds of alarms. Ionization smoke alarms are quicker to warn about flaming fires. Photoelectric alarms are quicker to warn about smoldering fires. It is best to use of both types of alarms in the home.
•When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside.
