Test. Change. Replace.
These three words could save your life in a house fire.
Test your smoke detector monthly. Change its batteries every 6 months. Replace it every 10 years.
FYI: Next generation smoke detectors have 10-year lithium batteries!
According to the National Fire Protection Association, almost 3 of every 5 home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms (40%) or no working smoke alarms (17%).
Test. Change. Replace… and be safe!
