Smoke alarms save lives. This statement is only true, if they are properly installed and maintained. According to Missouri Department of Public Safety, about 540 children (14 and under) die each year from home fires and 80 percent of those children did not have working smoke alarms in the home. What can you do keep your family safe?

Fire alarms should be kept:

  • Every Bedroom
  • Every level
  • Don’t forget basement and attic

Fire alarms should be tested:

  • Monthly by pressing the test button
  • Replace batteries every year (daylight saving time)
  • Replace unit every 10 years

Some additional tips include a fire escape plan which should have two exits. It is important to practice dire drills and interconnect all smoke alarms throughout the property to ensure safety. When fire and water damage take control of your life and home, SERVPRO® of Marshall, Sedalia, and Columbia will help you take it back. We are here to help our neighbors.
