Smoke Alarms Maintenance Tips
1) Test smoke alarms at least once a month using the test button ensuring everyone in your home recognizes the sound and knows two evacuation routes out of each room.
2) If a smoke alarm “chirps”, indicating a low battery, replace the battery immediately.
3) Replace smoke alarms if they do not respond properly when tested.
4) Never remove or disable a working smoke alarm.
