Smoke Detectors can Save Lives in Broomfield

9/18/2019 (Permalink)

Mounted smoke detector above a kitchen island. By installing a fire alarm in your home, you can lower your risk of being harmed in the event a fire breaks out in your Broomfield home.

A properly installed smoke alarm alerts you that danger is present in your home giving you time to get to safety. SERVPRO® of Broomfield/NW Adams County knows that fire is fast once it is started.

SERVPRO of Broomfield/NW Adams County wants you to remember:

  • Closed doors can slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. That is good for reducing smoke damage and fire damage. That is also why you should have a smoke alarm in every sleeping room in the home
  • Install smoke alarms on every level of the home
  • Do not turn off smoke detectors when cooking
  • Test the smoke alarms at least once a month. There is a test button on the alarm
  • Replace all smoke alarms every 10 years
  • Large homes might need extra smoke alarms
  • Some companies make alarms that are interconnected. When one sounds, they all sound
  • When the alarm sounds, get everyone outside and stay outside

If your Broomfield home is not properly protected by a smoke detector, please install one. If you experience a fire, immediately vacate the home and then contact your fire department once you are outside the home.

SERVPRO of Broomfield/NW Adams County is independently owned and operated.
