Smoke and Fire Alarms

 

The Importance of Smoke and Fire Alarms

Smoke and fire alarms are security systems which can alert you at the first detection of smoke.  These critical alarms should be placed in specific locations throughout your home to protect your family.

Every year in the United States, there are more than 350,000 home fires, resulting in over 2,500 deaths. Of these deaths, 60% of them occur during fires in which no working smoke alarm is present.  Smoke and toxic fumes spread through a house faster than flames, and they are especially hazardous, causing respiratory burns, lightheadedness, nausea, confusion, and sleepiness.  Smoke inhalation is the primary cause of death for home fire victims.

About half of home fire deaths occur between the hours of 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., while residents are asleep. Without a smoke alarm to wake residents and alert them to the danger, they are likely to succumb to carbon monoxide poisoning or smoke inhalation.  Because families may have as little as two minutes to get out of their house once a fire starts, smoke alarms provide the warning that residents need to safely escape.
