Fire Prevention Week is October 5 – 11, 2014. This year’s theme is Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month!

Your safety is your responsibility. Only working smoke alarms save lives. In fact, smoke alarms can increase your chances of surviving a fire by up to 50%!

Make sure you:

  • Test smoke alarms monthly.
  • Change the batteries once a year.
  • Replace smoke alarms after 10 years.
  • Develop and practice a home fire escape plan with everyone in your household.
