Properly working smoke alarms save lives. Our Otay Mesa and San Ysidro team has been restoring fire damage for homes and commercial businesses for many years and has witnessed the effectiveness of smoke alarms firsthand. Here are some smoke alarm safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

Smoke Alarm Safety
  • 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. 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.
  • Today’s smoke alarms will be more technologically advanced to respond to a multitude of fire conditions yet mitigate false alarms
  • When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside
  • Replace all smoke alarms in your home every ten years
