Smoke Alarm Placement: Smart Choices

Every three hours, someone in the U.S. dies in a home fire. And if a fire breaks out, you only have minutes to escape. Is your family prepared?

The Park City Fire District reminds you that placement matters:

  • Install working smoke alarms on each floor, in hallways, living areas and inside of all bedrooms.
  • The sooner you hear an alarm, the more time your family has to escape.
  • Check alarms regularly, replace them if they’re more than 10 years old, and develop and practice an escape plan with your family.

It’s these Smart Choices that could save lives.
