EMERGENCY SERVICES – EARLY WARNINGS ARE IMPORTANT!
The most dangerous part of any fire is the smoke. That is why smoke detectors are essential for early warning of a fire in your home. You should have one smoke detector on every level and one smoke detector in every bedroom in your house. Be sure to test them regularly to ensure they work. Smoke detectors now come with many features such as voices, different languages, flashing lights, wireless interconnection, hardwired inter-connection, battery powered, and carbon monoxide alarm. Make sure you are alerted before it is too late.
