Please Remember that a smoke alarm in every room could one day save you or your family’s life! When you have a smoke alarm put into your house you need to remember to check it once a month to ensure that the batteries are charged and the smoke alarm functions. Every detector has a test button that allows you to see if indeed the alarm works and has power. have you removed your detector because every time you cook it goes off? Well go out and buy a alarm that has a 15 minute shut off that will automatically start to work after 15 minutes of silence. One day you might just be woke up and alerted by a fire before its to late!
