Every Bedroom Needs
a Working Smoke Alarm!
SLEEP
Install smoke
alarms in every
bedroom, outside each
separate sleeping area,
and on every level of the
home, including the
basement. Larger
homes may need
more alarms.
Fire Prevention Week Oct. 4-10, 2015
Half of home fire deaths
happen between 11 p.m.
and 7 a.m., when most
people are asleep.
For the best
protection, install
interconnected
smoke alarms in
your home. When
one sounds, they
all sound.

Test alarms at
least once a
month by pushing
the test button.
Some people, especially
children and older adults,
may need help to wake
up. Make sure someone
will wake them if the
smoke alarm sounds.
Replace all smoke alarms
when they are 10 years
old or if they do not sound
when tested.
When the smoke alarm
sounds, get outside and stay
outside. Go to your outside
meeting place.

PARENTS,
AS PART OF FIRE PREVENTION WEEK, your child has
been learning about smoke alarms. Having smoke
alarms in your home is very important. Smoke alarms
let you know there is a fire. Working smoke alarms also
give you time to get outside and stay outside if there is
a fire.

C the date!
Smoke alarms don’t last forever. Every 10 years you
need new ones. When they are 10 years old, they don’t
sense smoke as well. With your child, look at the date
on the back of all the smoke alarms in your home.
This is also a good time to push the test button
on all smoke alarms,
and make sure they
are working.

Smoke Alarm Challenge
Take Sparky’s Smoke Alarm Challenge. With a grown-up,
look at the date on the back of all the smoke alarms in your
home. If they are older than 10 years, you need a new one.
This is also a good time to push the test button on all
smoke alarms, and make sure they are working.

Get outside and go to your meeting place.
PARENTS: Your child learned about the sound of a smoke alarm today. Review the
sound of the smoke alarm and remind your child — if the smoke alarm sounds, get
outside and go to your meeting place and stay outside until a trusted grown-up tells you
it is okay to leave. Plan and practice your home fire escape drill today.
· Make sure you have working smoke alarms.
· Plan two ways out of each room.
· Have an outside meeting place — like a mailbox or tree.
Sound the smoke alarm and have everyone in your home practice your escape drill,
meeting at your outside meeting place.
