Smoke alarms provide an early warning of fire, giving you and your family more time to safely evacuate your home.
Often, home fires occur in the darkness of night when residents are fast asleep. One misconception is that a person will awake from the smell of smoke. This is WRONG...Smoke is a silent killer! Smoke contains many deadly gases, such as carbon monoxide, that will actually put a person into an even deeper state of sleep, causing a person never to wake up. A smoke alarm is your first line of defense to get out alive.
