Fire Safety & Smoke Detectors Monitoring


When is the last time you checked the batteries in your smoke detector? Better yet, when was the last time you checked the overall effectiveness for your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors? Do you have an escape plan for your family in the event that the worst happens?

The reality is that most people either don’t keep up with maintaining their various alarms in the home and also don’t have an escape plan and meeting that everyone in the home knows about and is able to easily follow in the event of an emergency. “According to the National Fire Protection Association your home likely has a fire alarm; it is imperative to monitor the age of the alarm. A recent survey conducted by NFPA revealed that only a small percentage of people know how old their smoke alarms are, or how often they need to be replaced.”

This year Fire Prevention week was last month, but having an effective plan in place, ensuring all elements of fire and carbon monoxide detection are in proper working order and making sure the whole family is on the same page will help prevent the worst from happening.
