Smoke detectors.

Smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained in your home play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries.

If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out.

On average, 8 people die in a home fire each day in the U.S. — almost 3,000 people every year. While working smoke alarms cut the chance of dying in a fire nearly in half, roughly two-thirds of all home fire deaths occur in homes without working smoke alarms, according to statistics from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

The National Fire Protection Association recommends:

  • Smoke detectors on each level of your home.
  • Smoke detectors inside all sleeping areas.
  • Smoke detectors within 15’ of the doorway into any sleeping area.
  • Carbon monoxide detector within 15’ of any sleeping area.
  • On new homes, smoke alarms are required to be connected to each other so that they will all sound if any one of them detects a problem.

Make sure all alarms have fresh batteries and are in full working order. 

Carbon monoxide detectors.

Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas.

Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas created when fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, and methane) burn incompletely.

CO poisoning is entirely preventable! You can protect yourself and your family by learning the symptoms of CO poisoning and acting wisely during a power outage.

Every year, over 400 people in the U.S. die from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Several thousand more are treated in hospital emergency rooms for treatment for CO poisoning.

In your home, heating and cooking equipment that burn fuel are potential sources of carbon monoxide. Vehicles or generators running in an attached garage can also produce dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.

The CDC states:

“Everyone is at risk for CO poisoning. Infants, the elderly, people with chronic heart disease, anemia, or breathing problems are more likely to get sick from CO. Each year, more than 400 Americans die from unintentional CO poisoning not linked to fires, more than 20,000 visit the emergency room, and more than 4,000 are hospitalized.”

The Electrical Safety Foundation International recommends:

  1. Have your chimney inspected by a professional every year.
  2. Never use your oven, range, stovetop or clothes dryer to provide heat for your home.
  3. Never use a portable generator in any part of your home.
  4. See the complete list to reduce your risk of CO poisoning.

Should you buy battery-operated detectors for your home?

While “battery only” detectors offer some protection at a lower cost than the hard-wired types, the problem is that when the battery dies, they begin to “chirp”. Many people unplug the battery and forget to replace it, putting their families at risk. That’s why modern code prefers the hard-wired types.
