Should My Home Have Smoke Alarms?
In the event of a fire in your Pasco, Hernando, Hillsborough and Pinellas County home a smoke alarm can save your life and those of your loved ones. They are a very important means of preventing house and apartment fire fatalities by providing an early warning signal — so you and your family can escape. Smoke alarms are one of the best safety devices you can buy and install to protect yourself, your family, and your home.
Where Do I Install Them? Install fire alarms on every level of your Pasco, Hernando, Hillsborough and Pinellas County home. Many fatal fires begin late at night or in the early morning. For extra safety, install smoke alarms both inside and outside sleeping areas. Since smoke and many deadly gases rise, installing your smoke alarms at the proper level will provide you with the earliest warning possible. Hire a qualified Florida electrician who will perform a professional installation according to manufacturer’s specifications.
How Do I Keep My Smoke Alarm Working? In hard-wired, battery backup smoke alarms, the batteries need to be checked monthly, and replaced at least once per year. Hard wired smoke alarms are connected to the household electrical system and may or may not have battery backup. The entire unit should be replaced every 8-10 years.
