Smoke alarms save lives. Every home needs smoke alarms. They should be installed on every level of the home (including the basement), outside each sleeping area, and inside each bedroom. A smoke alarm senses smoke. It will sound if there is smoke in the home – possibly from a fire. When the smoke alarm sounds, everyone should leave the home right away.
