Hear the BEEP where you SLEEP
Every Bedroom Needs a Working Alarm!
Half of home fire deaths happen between 11 p.m and 7 a.m.. when most people are asleep.
- For the best protection, install interconnected smoke alarms in your home. When one sounds, they all sounds.
- Install smoke alarms in every bedroom. Outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of the home, including basement. Larger homes may need more alarms.
Test alarms at least once a month by pushing the test button. Replace all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old or if they do not sound when tested. Some people specially children and older adults, may need to help to wake up. Make sure someone will wake them if the smoke alarm sounds.
When the smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside. Go to your outside meeting place.
Call the fire department from a cellphone or a neighbors phone. Stay outside until the fire department says its safe to go back inside.
