Smoke Alarms:

What you need to know


Test Them Monthly

Press the 'TEST' button until you hear the beep. Do this monthly to ensure your alarms are working properly.


Change Batteries Annually

When you change your clocks for daylight savings time, remember to also replace smoke & CO alarm batteries.


Replace Every 10 Years

Smoke alarms that are older than 10 years old are unreliable and prone to failure. Replace all smoke alarms older than 10 years with new alarms.
