We’re noticing an alarming trend (no pun intended) lately here in Ohio.   Many of the fatal fire scenes that have been investigated here in the state the investigators are not finding smoke detectors in Ohio Homes.

It’s a disturbing trend, a $15 device could save your life and those of everyone in your home if it is simply installed correctly, maintained (fresh batteries) (cleaned out) (tested).

Please take a few minutes and review this flyer for specific information about the smoke detector technologies available and installation locations and maintenance of the detectors.  Also please remember “Don’t assume that a $5 smoke detector will do that same job as a $15 smoke detector” manufacturers are adding all types of technology to prevent false alarms and extend battery life.
