Smoke Alarms & Escape Planning

Make Sure You Have Working Smoke Alarms

Smoke kills. Most fire deaths and injuries are caused by smoke, not flames. They occur at night while victims sleep. Smoke alarms won't prevent fires, but they will increase your chances of getting out and calling the fire department. Working smoke alarms more than double your chance of surviving a fire.

Make sure you have smoke alarms placed on every level of your home and each sleeping area. Learn more.
