Smoke alarms save lives. Having a smoke alarm in your home cuts your chance of dying in a fire nearly in half! Install at least one smoke alarm on each level of your home and outside each sleeping area. Smoke alarms should be tested once a month and batteries replaced once a year or when the alarm “chirps”, warning that the battery is low.
