October is Fire Prevention Month. First Alert is encouraging consumers to "power up" their smoke and carbon dioxide alarms in a nationwide public education campaign focused on having consumers to test alarms, and if needed, update with better devices. When you choose to replace your device with a newer one, you are letting advanced technology to combat frequent false alarms and better detect real threats.
Did you know that in 1/5 of homes smoke alarms are non-working? Households have smoke alarms installed, but most don't realize that the batteries are dead or the unit needs to be replaced. That's very scary and concerning. Two-thirds of home fire deaths each year occur in properties without working smoke alarms. Don't let something tragic and horrible come out of an easily fixable situation. (According to the National Fire Protection Association).
Let October be a reminder to you to check on your smoke alarms to make sure they are in working order. Assist elderly friends or family members with their units to confirm they are in top notch condition too.
