Smoke alarms save lives. Properly working smoke alarms give you and your family an early warning to get outside to your meeting spot quickly. It is recommended by the National Fire Protection Association to have a smoke alarm on each level of your home, including your basement and attic, inside every bedroom, and outside each sleeping area.
