Loss Prevention Service - Smoke Detectors
According to the Office of the Fire Marshal, every year, approximately 8,000 fire incidents in homes claim 130 lives and injure 600 persons. Lives can be saved and injuries reduced by providing detection and early warning of fire. In a fire situation, time is very important; the minutes and seconds gained through early warning may save your life. Smoke detectors are an important fire safety feature that should be used in every home, apartment, or mobile home. Smoke detectors have proven to be an economical and efficient means to save lives. The Office of the Fire Marshal recommends that there should be one working smoke detector in each home and preferably one per floor. A smoke detector located on each floor provides optimal smoke and fire protection for your home. Remember that fire safety in the home does not end with smoke alarms. Smoke alarms are a necessary part of overall safety planning in your home.
