Six out of ten residential fire deaths occur in homes without smoke alarms. Working smoke alarms cut your chances of dying in a house fire in half.

Need to know where to place your smoke alarms?
Where shouldn't I install smoke alarms?
Do not install them in the garage, attic, kitchen, bathroom or workshop.
If you are cooking and steam or fumes or smoke cause a false alarm, do not remove the battery to stop the sound ~ instead fan the area of the alarm with a kitchen towel or similar and open a window. The sound will stop.
