Eighty-three percent (83%) of all civilian fire-related deaths are a result of home fires.
On average nearly three children a day die in these fires. By providing an early warning and critical extra seconds to escape, smoke alarms can DOUBLE your families’ chances of getting out of a home fire alive – BUT ONLY IF THEY WORK.
So, when you change your clocks on March 10 (daylight savings time), we hope you make a lifesaving change in your household – changing the batteries in your smoke alarms. This simple habit takes just a moment but is the best defense your family has against the devastating effect of a home fire.
