Some good info on home smoke alarms.
Smoke Detectors; you can’t cook with them and you won’t survive an overnight fire with out them! Chances are that your only interaction with the round, white discs on your ceiling are when they seem to maliciously decide the battery is too low in the middle of the night and keep you up all night with that steady and annoying chirp.
A properly installed and maintained smoke alarm is the only thing in your home that can alert you and your family to a fire 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whether you’re awake or asleep, a working smoke alarm is constantly on alert, scanning the air for fire and smoke.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in properties without working smoke alarms. A working smoke alarm significantly increases your chances of surviving a deadly home fire.
