Fire & Carbon Monoxide Detectors
According to the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA), an average of seven people die in US home fires every day. In 2015 alone, there were 365,000 home fires reported in the United States.
And adding carbon monoxide into the mix just gives greatly fuel to those fires.
We recommend that you have smoke detectors that detect flaming and smoldering fires installed in every bedroom, plus at least one on every floor — including attics and basements. And you should have a CO detector on each living level, plus attics and basements and near (not inside) an attached garage.
Before you shop, check regulations in your region. What you need, including types of alarms and their placement, can vary. Also, some insurance companies offer a 5 percent discount for homes with smoke alarms.
Local regulations may dictate types and locations of devices — let the knowledgeable team at Alarm Partners take the worry away and make sure you have the protection you need.
