Although it probably doesn’t cross your mind, fires in both home and place of business are common. In 2016 alone, over 1.3 million fires were reported in the United States. One home structure fire reported every 90 seconds and one civilian fire death every two hours and 35 minutes. One way to provide peace of mind is by installing the proper amount of fire alarms throughout your premises.
The More, the Better
Generally, there is no such thing as having too many fire alarms. According to the National Fire Protection Association, your home should have a fire alarm installed inside every bedroom. Outside every sleeping area and on every story of your home, basement included. For example, a home that has two stories and three bedrooms should have at least five smoke alarms.
