  • Turn and Test as Daylight Saving Time Ends

Typically, smoke detectors should be replaced every 10 years, and carbon-monoxide detectors should be replaced every five years.

Place a smoke alarm on the ceiling of every level of your home and both inside and outside bedrooms. "A chirping alarm means the batteries are weak and need to be protected".

Each of these reasons is easily remedied by either simply replacing the battery or the device. Make sure everyone in the household knows how to get out of every room and how to get out of the home in less than two minutes. Replace the entire alarm if it's more than 10 years old or doesn't work properly when tested.

Experts say it's important to check your alarms are working at least once a month, and always practice a fire escape plan with your family.
