How Does Your Home Measure Up to Fire Safety
More often then not, the sound from a smoke detector is more reliable than your senses to alert you of a fire when you are sound asleep.
Many people think that they will wake up because they will be able to smell the smoke. Not so, because your sense of smell shuts down when you sleep, and your sense of hearing is more active.
The National Fire Protection Association reported that 2 out 5 home fires that sustained fire damage, either did not have smoke alarms or they were disabled.
Make sure that your alarm is placed properly so that you'll not be tempted to disable the alarm and installed correctly to ensure it's effectiveness and efficiency. How does your home measure up for fire safety?
