Alarms & Extinguishers

Smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, and fire extinguishers. No home should be without them.

It is always a good idea to have several smoke alarms placed throughout your home to warn you of smoke or fire.

They come in battery operated and wired. Some are combination smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector.

If you have a home with gas coming in to heat your home or have a gas stove or dryer, then you should have carbon monoxide detectors. The fumes from a gas leak can kill you from breathing it in or from an explosion if it is sparked.

Smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors are pretty inexpensive and well worth the price for you and your family’s safety.

There is a good article on smoke alarms that you can visit from the U.S. Fire Administration.

Fire extinguishers are also important to have around the home to put out a small fire before it gets too big and dangerous.

Always have at least two fire extinguishers located in separate areas of your home.
