Have you tested your smoke detectors lately? Smoke alarms are an integral part of a home fire escape plan. Smoke detectors play an essential role in reducing fire deaths in the United States, and working fire alarms give early warnings so you can get outside quickly. Our local team in Bemidji, Grand Rapids, and Hibbing responds to fire damage emergencies every year in St. Louis County and offers these smoke alarm safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

Smoke Alarm Safety
  • A closed door may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of the home. 
  • Smoke alarms should be interconnected. When one sounds, they all sound. 
  • Large homes may need extra smoke alarms
  • Test your smoke alarms at least once a month. Press the test button to be sure the alarm is working.
  • Today’s smoke alarms will be more technologically advanced to respond to a multitude of fire conditions yet mitigate false alarms
  • When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside
  • Replace all smoke alarms in your home every ten years
