Sounds of Safety - Smoke Detectors
Department of Building Safety/Code Compliance
What is the most important thing to remember when installing a smoke alarm? Location, location, location!! Smoke alarms can't help you unless you can hear them. The building code requires smoke alarms to be installed in every bedroom, any hallway leading to a bedroom, any hallway leading to a bedroom, and eah levelof a multi-story building. Keep your batteries fresh by replacing them every year when you setback your clocks.
