Installing Smoke Alarms
Mount smoke alarms in the middle of the ceiling, if possible.
For wall-mounted units, place them at least 3 feet (1 m) from any corner and 4-6" (10-15cm) from the ceiling.
Do not install smoke alarms near heating or cooling ducts.
In mobile home units, install smoke alarms on inside walls.
How Many and Where?
For minimum protection, install smoke alarms in each bedroom, outside each sleeping area, such as the hallway, and on every level of your home.
For maximum protection, install additional smoke alarms in each living area of your home.
Additional Smoke Alarm Tips
On average, families have less than three minutes from the time the first smoke alarm sounds to escape a fire. The sooner you hear an alarm, the more time you will have to get out.
Replace smoke alarms every 10 years. Alarms monitor the home every minute of every day and their lifespan is not infinite. If you don't know how old your alarm is, you should replace it.
Test your smoke alarm per manufacturer’s instructions and replace the batteries as needed
Gently vacuum your smoke alarm monthly to prevent dirt from blocking the sensor.
Do not disable a smoke alarm in nuisance situations. Do not "borrow" smoke alarm batteries for other uses such as toys or radios.
D evelop and practice a fire escape plan with the family, so that everyone knows what to do when the alarm sounds.
