We want every Smoke Alarm in the City of Woodbury to be Checked.
If the Alarm is over ten (10) years old, or if a date isn't indicated,
the Smoke Alarm needs to be augmented (a second alarm added) or simply replaced.
We are writing dates on our Smoke Alarms because we love our families.
If you can't afford a Smoke Alarm,
the Minnesota Region of the American Red Cross can provide a Smoke Alarm free of charge.
Interconnected Smoke Alarms
are BEST, so when one alarm detects smoke, all the alarms sound the warning.
You should have a smoke alarm inside and outside every sleeping room and on every floor of your home.
For a family of Four (4), that lifetime chance for one member to die by fire
drops to just 1 in 360. In just ten (10) years, 1 out of 3 smoke alarms may not detect a fire, even if they sound when the test button is pressed.
Smoke kills. The more warning you have, the greater your chance to escape.
For just a nickle a day, under $200, you can add six (6) new, wireless, battery operated Smoke Alarms to whatever alarms you currently have. They can also be interconnected with your existing wired Smoke Alarms. A combination of alarm sensors, ionization and photoelectric, detect more fires faster. They can work with CO - Carbon Monoxide, alarms too, (which should be replaced sooner, just every 5 years).
on your smoke alarms,
please enter our drawing for a
donated by Mr. Braun. If replacing existing alarms is too difficult, new alarms can be added with an electrician.
When your home reached age ten (10) it deserves a present. Buy your home that serves you so well the life saving gift of new, working interconneced smoke alarms.
