Whether you plan to build a new home or buy a pre-existing home, make sure to check the placement of smoke alarms, be aware of what type of alarm you have, and take a few minutes each month to check for any potential problems. Ensuring that your smoke detector works properly gives you and your family valuable time to safely evacuate your home in the event of a fire.
