Huntsville Fire Department
During Fire Prevention Week--help us sound the alarm that working smoke alarms save lives.
Did you know that many people don't test their smoke alarms as often as they should? When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. You need working smoke alarms to give you time to get out. Test yours every month!
Smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries.
Smoke alarms save lives. If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out. Having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half. Almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.
Here's what you need to know!
Install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of your home
Test your smoke alarms every month
- When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside
- Replace all smoke alarms in your home every 10 years
