How often should you replace your home’s smoke alarms? And, how often do you need to test them?

The 2015 Fire Prevention Week theme is “Hear the Beep where you Sleep. Every bedroom needs working smoke alarms.” As a fun way to test your knowledge on smoke alarms, we put together this short Fire Prevention Week quiz. Like years past, take the quiz and see how well you know your smoke alarm fire safety information, as well as find out what you might need a quick refresher on. We make it easy to share results with your friends on Facebook and Twitter as well.

Take the Fire Prevention Week quiz now!

Smoke alarms save lives. If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out. In fact, having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half! Find more information on smoke alarms by visiting the Fire Prevention week website.
