Fire Detectors: Life Savers
Smoke Detectors in your Tuscaloosa home could save your life and your family's!
According to The American Red Cross
- 7 people die daily in a house fire
- Every 40 minutes a fire injury is reported
- $7 billion in property damage every year
The National Fire Protection Association strongly suggest that a smoke alarm is installed in every bedroom, outside every sleeping area, and on every level of the home. If your Tuscaloosa home is larger, you may need more smoke alarms to ensure you will be alarmed when smoke hits the detector.
Many home security systems now offer a smoke detector option that will contact your local fire department in the event of smoke detection. This is a great safety tool for when you are out of town or possibly a really heavy sleeper!
In the event of a house fire big or small, call SERVPRO of Tuscaloosa for your clean up needs.
Call your local Red Cross Chapter to help assist with adjusting if you have been temporarily put out.
