Did you know that your smoke detector is only good for 10 years, and must be replaced after that?
These life-saving devices do more than most people realize:
- The risk of dying in reported home structure fires is cut in half in homes with working smoke alarms
- Three of every five home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no or non-working smoke alarms
- Test your smoke alarms every month to make sure they operate.
- Dead batteries caused one-quarter (24%) of the smoke alarm failures
