In part three of ourSmoke Alarm Smartsvideo series, Sparky asks people how often smoke alarms should be replaced

By Susan McKelvey

In anticipation of Semaine de la prévention des incendies, Octobre 4-10, today we’re launching the third video in our “Smoke Alarm Smarts” series, which addresses smoke alarm replacement. As you’ll see, when Sparky the Fire Dog® randomly asked people how often they think détecteurs de fumée in the home need to be replaced, he gets a lot of guesses in response.

We encourage all fire departments, fire safety educators and others to share this video on their social media platforms, websites and via email – it’s a quick, engaging way to reinforce a basic but vital message about smoke alarm safety: smoke alarms need to be replaced every 10 years.

(Tip: To figure out when the smoke alarms in your home need to be replaced, look on the back of the smoke alarm for the date of manufacture. Smoke alarms should be replaced 10 years from that date. Immediately replace any smoke alarm that does not respond properly when tested.)
