Let’s Talk About Smoke Alarms

At SERVPRO® of Otay Mesa/San Ysidro, we often arrive as the first responders are leaving the scene of the fire, and we know the difference a properly installed and maintained smoke alarms system can make. If there is a fire in your house, the smoke will spread quickly, and smoke alarms will give you time to get out. Here is some information from the National Fire Protection Association about smoke alarms:

  • A closed-door may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire
  • Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area
  • Install alarms on every level of the home 
  • Smoke alarms should be interconnected so when one sounds, they all sound 
  • Large homes may need extra smoke alarms
  • Test your smoke alarms at least once a month. Press the test button to be sure the alarm is working.
  • When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside
  • Replace all smoke alarms in your home every 10 years
  • More about installation and maintenance of home smoke alarms
