Does your home have a smoke alarm? According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the answer is likely "yes". However, research also shows that most people have NO idea how old their smoke alarm is! 

NFPA 72, National Fire Alarm Code®, requires smoke alarms be replaced at least every 10 years, but because the public is generally unaware of this requirement, many homes have smoke alarms past their expiration date, putting people at increased risk.   To check how old your smoke alarm is, look for the manufacture date on the back of all of the smoke alarms in your home. This is the perfect time to make sure you have a newer, working smoke alarm on every level in your home AND in hallways leading to sleeping areas.

Home fires killed more than 2,650 people in the United States in 2015 and fire departments responded to more than 365,500 home fires. Early warning is critical to preventing injuries and deaths related to fires in the home, and smoke alarms are one simple step to saving lives.
