 • Install smoke alarms inside every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home

 • Smoke alarms should be tested monthly

 • Replaceable batteries should be replaced annually

 • Smoke alarms with life-long batteries will work for up to 10 years

 • Closed doors slow the spread of smoke, heat and fire

 • Fatal fires often occur at night
