  • Smoke alarms should be tested monthly.
  • Smoke alarm batteries should be changed at least once a year.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT: SMOKE ALARMS

  • Install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement.
  • Interconnect your home’s smoke alarms. This way, when one sounds, they all sound.
  • Teach children the sound of the smoke alarm and to exit the home/building when it sounds.
  • Place alarms on the ceiling. If alarms are placed on the wall they must be no more than 12 inches below the ceiling.
