Smoke Alarms - According to the National Fire Protection Association

According to the National Fire Protection Association, between 2003-2006, almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.

The U.S. Fire Administration recommends that every residence and place where people sleep be equipped with both ionization and photoelectric smoke alarms or dual sensor smoke alarms, which contain both ionization and photoelectric smoke sensors.

Official FEMA Report States:

“If your smoke alarm was installed before March 14, 2002, it needs to Be Replaced.”
