Fire Safety Tips
- Install smoke alarms near bedrooms – high on a wall or ceiling
- Do not install smoke alarms near air vents
- Do not install on the ceiling directly above frying pans in the kitchen
- Test smoke alarms at least once a month to ensure they work
If you want to ensure proper protection against accidental fires, a smoke detector is exactly what you need. A smoke detector is a specially designed system that triggers an alarm once smoke accumulates inside a room.
Today, smoke detectors are a must for businesses. They are installed in many homes to alert people when their property catches fire. Emergency services can be alerted within a short time frame, and your home or business can be saved from perishing in flames, provided that you have such a simple device installed on the premises.
Type of Smoke Detector – Local only
Fire Safety SG’s smoke detector operates on battery. A sensor is placed inside a case and when this sensor detects smoke, it triggers an alarm. Smoke is a gas and the sensor is specially designed to detect it; once you hear the alarm going off, you can call your local emergency service if it is not in your power to stop the fire. Some models contain an led light that starts flashing when the alarm goes off.
A reliable fire extinguisher can help you take out the fire on your own. However, it is always advisable to call the emergency line and run to safety.
Smoke Detectors Suitable for Home and Commercial Use
Electrical systems, flammable materials, faulty equipment and many others can become sources of accidental fires. Especially for businesses that operate in commercial buildings, it is very important to have smoke detectors installed in all important areas, to detect a fire as soon as it breaks out. Business owners also need to control their smoke detectors to see if they are in good working order. High quality Smoke Detector like the one from Fire Safety SG is recommended, and you will not have to make a new investment every year.
