Smoke Alarms
Updated On: Jan 10, 2012

 

Smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries. Having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half.

Please watch this short video from the NFPA for the basics on home smoke alarms.

Smoke Alarm Basics
Sharon Gamache, NFPA Director of High-Risk Outreach Programs, talks about basic smoke alarm safety tips  

Facts & figures

  • Ninety-six percent of all homes have at least one smoke alarm, according to a 2010 telephone survey. Overall, three-quarters of all U.S. homes have at least one working smoke alarm.
  • Almost two-thirds of home fire deaths in 2005-2009 resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.
  •  When smoke alarms fail to operate, it is usually because batteries are missing, disconnected or dead.  Almost one-quarter of the smoke alarm failures was due to dead batteries.
