Prepared with Fire Safety Equipment
When I was a baby our family home caught on fire while we were sleeping. This was before smoke or fire alarms were available. It was devastating leaving our family of 6 nothing. We also lost pets in the fire. Had we the technology available today, we would have been spared the tragedy. Sadly, even today 3 of 5 fire deaths happen in homes without working smoke alarms.
Today, we have smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to alert us of dangers. First Alert’s alarms have batteries that last 10 years. No more having to change your alarms’ batteries because it started chirping in the middle of the night. You can choose from different models including, fire and smoke, smoke and carbon monoxide, and carbon monoxide.
You’re Safe with First Alert
The 10-Year Atom Smoke & Fire Alarm has a sealed 10 year battery and an advance smoke entry system to reduce false alarms. First Alert’s 10-Year Dual Sensor Smoke & Fire Alarm provides dual safety with a 10-year battery and dual photoelectric and ionization sensors to offer the highest level of protection against both smoldering and fast-flaming fire. Plus it reduces the chances of it going off in a non-emergency.
The 10-Year Carbon Monoxide Alarm keeps your family safe from the dangerous gas you can’t see or smell. It meters the room without worry of changing batteries. The unit uses an electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor – the most accurate technology available. They also have 10-Year Combination Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm that detects both for dual monitoring.
Each of these work well in different areas of your home for the best of safety against fires or carbon monoxide.
