Do you know what your smoke detector sounds like when there’s an emergency?
Most detectors are designed to have different sounds and/or change the number of beeps for smoke, low battery, or for carbon monoxide (CO) alarms.
It is important for everyone in your house to know the sounds of your smoke and CO detectors.
When the fire or CO detectors alarm, immediately get out of the house as quickly and safely as possible.
It is recommended to install bed shaker and strobe light alarms to alert people with hearing or visual impairments.
Test each of your detectors every month to ensure the alarms are working properly.
Change the batteries when the low battery alarm chirps or at least twice per year, usually when you change your clocks for daylight savings.
Be sure to replace all detectors that are 10 years or older.
