Every home should have working smoke alarms. If the alarm sounds you may have less than a minute to get outside or to a safe place to call 911.
Test your smoke alarms monthly and if your smoke alarms are more than 10 years old, replace them.
Install smoke alarms:
- In every bedroom
- Outside each sleeping area
- On every level of the home
- including the basement
The Seattle Fire Department can provide and install free smoke alarms for owner-occupied homes in the city, when the home-owner is a senior or is living on a low income or has a disability. Call 206-386-1337 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or online for more information.
