Dan Doofus reminds us to replace old smoke alarms in new video


By Lisa Braxton

NFPA’s lovable Dan Doofus is back with a new video for the new year. Dan is reminding everyone to make sure they have enough smoke alarms in the home, test them monthly, and replace them every 10 years. The Dan Doofus series of videos is intended to convey a safety message in a light-hearted, entertaining way. They are not intended for children.

NFPA has developed several videos to help individuals, families, and communities learn about the importance of installing and maintaining working smoke alarms in the home.
