Smoke & Heat Alarms
Smoke alarms save lives. Smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries. If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out.
Our smoke and heat alarms, compared to most alarms in households which are independent battery operated, are interconnected meaning: when one sounds, they all sound!
Some facts about smoke and heat detection devices, reported by National Fire Protection Association:
- In 2012-2016, smoke alarms sounded in more than half (53%) of the home fires reported to U.S. fire departments.
- The death rate per 1,000 reported home fires was more than twice as high in homes that did not have any working smoke alarms compared to the rate in homes with working smoke alarms (12.3 deaths vs. 5.7 deaths per 1,000 fires).
