Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms

August 13, 2015 @ 12:40 pm posted by

Every year, many people lose their lives unnecessarily because of a smoke alarm or lack thereof.  They either have a smoke alarm that doesn’t work because of one of three reasons:  a)  the batteries don’t work  b) there are no batteries in the smoke detector or c) there is no smoke alarm in the house.

You need to have more than just a smoke alarm where you live.  You need to have a working smoke alarm.  Having a smoke alarm in your place of residence doesn’t do you or your family any just if it falls within one of the first two reasons above.

Having a working smoke detector can save you and your family from further danger if you have one that works.  To ensure that it works, you should test the batteries periodically (every few months).

When you get the smoke alarm, if you are not familiar with how to install it, there are instructions that come with it.  Or you can have someone more experienced to install it for you.  The important thing is to have a smoke alarm that is working properly.

In addition to having a smoke alarm, nowadays, it’s good for people to have a carbon monoxide alarm or a combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarm.  Since carbon monoxide is invisible and odorless, you won’t know something is wrong unless you have one of these alarms.

Some people may not realize how dangerous it is to ingest carbon monoxide.  The bad thing about this is that most of the time, people don’t realize it until it’s too late.

A detector that can spot a flow of carbon monoxide can help to assist those that may be in the midst of it to get out quickly.  Carbon monoxide has proven to be deadly in a lot of instances.  This alarm can help people to realize what’s going on and alert everyone else that is around you.

In fact, both the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are good to have in your home.  You want to divert a disaster either way.  There are too many people that don’t think that this is important, but it is.

Some people don’t realize how much until it happens to or affects them with their family or someone else that they know.  So it’s important that you and your family are educated about smoke alarms as well as carbon monoxide alarms.  The time is now to get all of the emergency preparedness information you can so that you and your family will be able to save lives.
