Gas and Smoke detectors are a powerful and effective fire safety technology. They are the first lines of defense against smoke and fire. Most importantly, they provide an early warning alerting individuals of a fire, allowing them precious time to escape.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), 75 to 80% of all deaths by fire happen in the home. More than half of these deaths occurred in buildings without smoke detectors. By installing a smoke detector, individuals can reduce the risk of dying by almost 50%.
