​Smoke alarms with non-replaceable 10-year batteries are designed to remain effective to up to 10 years. If the alarm beeps, warning that the battery is low, replace the smoke alarm right away. #IAFF #IAFFSafetyTips
Make sure to always replace your smoke alarm every 10 years. Don’t see a date on the back? Replace it! #IAFF #IAFFSafetyTips

More than 400 people die each year in the United States from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. When you install smoke alarms, install carbon monoxide detectors.​ #IAFF #IAFFSafetyTips​​
Install carbon monoxide detectors where you install smoke alarms. If the audible trouble signal sounds, first check for low batteries. If the battery is low, replace it. If it still sounds, call the fire department. #IAFF #IAFFSafetyTips
