Habitation About smoke detectors

Will your smoke detectors work, or will you hear them in the event of a fire?

To make sure:

  • Install smoke detectors outside bedrooms and on each floor of your home, including the basement.
  • Make sure dust doesn't collect on smoke detectors and never paint over them.
  • Don't use rechargeable batteries, as they can fail without warning.
  • Check smoke detectors at least once a month.
  • Replace batteries at least once a year, or better still, whenever you change the clocks forward or back. Change the clocks, change the batteries!
  • Replace smoke detectors every 10 years.
