In a fire, SMOKE is the greatest threat

Smoke is full of toxic by-products, including carbon monoxide. These poisonous gases are responsible for the most deaths and injuries in fires, not the actual flames.

Tampering with smoke alarms is DEADLY

When you take down your smoke alarm because of false alarms or remove the batteries, your risk of dying in a fire goes up. Photoelectric smoke alarms reduce false alarms.

Your smoke and CO alarms DON’T last forever

Your alarms monitor the air in your home millions of times in their lifespan. Sensors can deteriorate. REPLACE smoke alarms every 10 years and CO alarms every 7-10.
