Smoke Detectors

Numerous research studies show that working smoke detectors lead to reduced fatalities from residential structure fires. By alerting occupants to the presence of a fire and facilitating early response, smoke detectors have been demonstrated to save lives, reduce fire related injury, reduce the spread of fires, and reduce the damage caused by fire. EMBC research indicates that your chances of dying in a home fire can be reduced by as much as 74% if a working smoke detector is present in your home.
