Test your smoke alarms

The American Red Cross reminds you to check your smoke alarms.

Most people don’t realize you have only two minutes to escape a home fire.

The nation’s most frequent disaster takes an average of 7 people a day, mostly children and the elderly. 

Having a smoke alarm cuts that risk almost in half.

Also, if your smoke alarm is more than ten years old, replace it.

Sensors become less sensitive over time.
