Alarm Replacement PSA

Many home fire deaths occur due to smoke alarms that aren’t working. After 10 years, a smoke alarm has worked continuously for more than 87,000 hours. Does your cell phone, computer or even coffee maker work that long? How old is your alarm?

The (INSERT FIRE DEPARTMENT NAME) reminds you that replacement matters. Replace smoke alarms every ten years. Install alarms on each floor, in living areas, and inside and outside of sleeping areas. Consider using an alarm with a sealed in battery. It will provide maintenance free protection for the life of the alarm.
