Whether you’re awake or asleep, a working smoke alarm is constantly on alert, scanning the air for fire and smoke. Click the link below for more smoke alarm info.

HAVE AN ESCAPE PLAN

In the event of a fire, remember - time is the biggest enemy and every second counts! Escape plans help you get out of your home quickly. In less than 30 seconds a small flame can get completely out of control and turn into a major fire. It only takes minutes for a house to fill with thick black smoke and become engulfed in flames.
