OCTOBER 9 - 15 


"Don't Wait, Check the Date!"


  • Some smoke alarms need a new battery every year.  Others have a battery that lasts much longer.  To find out what kind you have, look at the smoke alarm packaging, manufacturer's instructions, or on the back of the smoke alarm to find out.
  • Replace all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old.
  • Test every smoke alarm once a month.  Put a new battery in if the alarm doesn't sound when the test button is pushed.
  • Replace the battery once a year, if it isn't one that lasts longer.
  • Three out of five home fire deaths happen from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.
  •  When smoke alarms fail to operate, it is usually because batteries are missing, disconnected, or dead.
  • Working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in reported home fires in half.
