1.  Have working smoke alarms in each bedroom and one outside each sleeping area.  Install alarms on every level of the home including the basement.
  2. Test all alarms once a month.
  3. There are 2 kinds of alarms.  Ionization smoke alarms are quicker to warn about flaming fires.  Photoelectric alarms are quicker to warn about smoldering fires.  Its best to use both types.
  4. People who are hard of hearing or deaf can use special alarms which have strobe lights and bed shakers.
  5. Replace smoke alarms every 10 years.  *Courtesy of Property Casualty 360.
