Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years

Posted on October 10, 2016 at 6:25 AM

The National Fire Prevention Association has announced that October 9 - 15, 2016 is Fire Prevention Week.  This year the focus is on educating people about their smoke detectors.  A recent study showed that "only a small percentage of people know how old their smoke alarms are, or how often they need to be replaced."

 

Here is a reminder for you:  

  • Smoke alarms should be replaced every 10 years.
  • Make sure you know how old all the smoke alarms are in your home.
  • To find out how old a smoke alarm is, look at the date of manufacture on the back of the alarm; the alarm should be replaced 10 years from that date.
