Home Fire and Carbon Monoxide Safety

4th of July is almost here! July is a great month to remember to check our smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Did you know that new smoke alarms, that are not hardwired, have a 10 year battery lifespan? The days of replacing old 9 volt batteries are gone. All newly manufactured smoke alarms have batteries designed to last 10 years, however they should be tested monthly to ensure safety. Smoke alarms should be installed in hallways and one in each sleeping bedroom. Carbon monoxide alarms should also be installed in your home's hallways.
