Fire Alarm System Installation.
One of the most important fire safety devices in a home is a smoke and fire alarm system. Several studies have concluded that when working smoke alarm systems are present, the chance of dying from the fire is cut in half. Smoke alarms currently in place have saved thousands of lives, but several problems exist. First, the 12% of homes without alarms have more than half of the fires; second, it is estimated that a third of the smoke alarms in place are not working, often due to failure to replace a worn out battery; and third, many homes do not have as many smoke alarms as are needed to protect the occupants properly.
