Smoke Alarms: Beep, Beep, Beep
Let's hear it for fire safety! Smoke alarms are important. You need one on every level of your home. You even need one in your bedroom to wake you if there is a fire while you're sleeping. Smoke alarms make a loud "beep beep beep" if there is smoke. If the smoke alarm sounds, everyone should get outside and stay outside.

Sparky's Safety Spots: Smoke Alarms
This classic NFPA video takes place at home with Sparky Spots, a group of spots who reside on the ear of Sparky the Fire Dog®. The Spots remind us about the importance of installing smoke alarms in our homes. Listen carefully: Sparky is voiced by veteran actor Dick Van Dyke. Note: the sound of the smoke alarm in this video is not the typical "Temporal-3" (T-3) audio (three beeps when tested - "beep beep beep").
