According to FEMA, properly working smoke alarms decrease your chances of dying in a fire by 50 percent.
*Remember to test and clean smoke alarms and CO detectors once a month and replace batteries at least once a year. A good way to remember to do this is to replace the batteries during National Preparedness Month that occurs every September. Or, as you set your clock back for daylight savings time, remember to check and replace your smoke detector batteries.
