Home Fire Alarms - Life Savers

What happens if there is a fire in your home, dorm, hotel room or workplace? If the alarm sounds, will you be alerted?

The purchase and placement of smoke detectors in a private home is the responsibility of the occupant. New construction will invoke local building codes, but these rarely involve anything more than the most rudimentary of smoke detectors.

The most crucial locations for receiving notification are the bedroom and any other area where the person with hearing loss may fall asleep. Approximately half of all fire deaths in private residences occur in lounge areas, where many people fall asleep. This represents a big number and shows how no taking the proper actions could lead to a disaster.

Make sure the unit is installed in a way that is visible to you. In many homes and for many people, however, the single combination sensor and alarm will not be sufficient. If the bedroom is located on the third floor of a large Victorian house, for example, the lower floors

may be engulfed in flames before the detector on the third floor is activated. Early warning of fire is critical. In multi-story or large residences, we would advise consultation with your local fire department for specific recommendations about the placement of interconnected sensors and alerts. Particularly if you verify that strobe lights would wake you up, you may want to consider installing a hard-wired, supervised, and interconnected fire alarm system with strobe and auditory alerts and battery-back up. Consult with a local fire alarm company about installing such a system.

Home fire alarms are indispensable in every home. Keeping your loved one's safe is important to you, and thus getting a good fire alarm system in your home will surely be a life saver is ever needed in case of an emergency.
