Time to Check Your Smoke Alarms
Emergencies are going to happen; that’s life. Having a plan in place is super important, especially when owning a house or business. Checking your fire alarms frequently is important to preparation. Here are some things to keep in mind when it comes to your fire alarms:
BATTERY LIFE: According to the NFPA, you may need to change your batteries every 6 months (that’s what that little beeping noise is) and the entire smoke alarm every 10 years.
SAFETY: The placement of smoke alarms is very important. Placing them in all sleeping areas and outside bedrooms/outside of doors.
FEATURES: The NFPA suggests checking your alarm systems every month by pushing the “test” button and making sure the sound works.
BRANDS: The evolution of technology has changed our world in so many ways & smoke alarms are no exception. Google has their own brand of smoke alarms and it is listed as the most popular and reliable smoke alarm.
