     According to the National Fire Protection Association, two-thirds of fire deaths occurred in homes that had no smoke alarm present or functioning. These life saving devices are relatively inexpensive and require nothing more than a monthly test and a fresh battery every year to keep them running optimally.
     Smoke alarms should be installed in every bedroom and sleeping area. It's also recommended to have at least one in every level of a home, including the basement. Alarms should also be placed near stairways and away from doors and windows.
     When purchasing a new home, one of the first things you should look into is replacing the smoke alarms as they do have a shelf life of about 10 years. Protect your family and make sure your equipped with these life saving devices.
