I pledge to place smoke alarms in every room to maximize my chances of early warning and escape.

Alarm Pledge

I pledge to:

  • Take steps to make my home as fire safe as possible, and educate my family about the important fire safety actions.
  • Check my smoke alarms and replace all units that are 10 or more years old. If I can't recall their age, I'll take the safe step to replace them with units that include long-life, sealed-in batteries.
  • Install smoke alarms on every level of my home and in every room, including inside and outside of bedrooms, in hallways, and in living in kitchen areas.
  • Test my smoke alarms weekly, and replace the batteries twice a year.
  • Create and regularly practice a fire escape plan with my family.

All of this I solemnly pledge to help keep firefighters and my family safe.
