The Mississippi State Fire Marshal warned residents to be aware of unauthorized alarm salespersons that may be operating in the state.

Daylight Saving Time kicks off at 2:00am this Sunday, March 12.

"Installing and maintaining smoke and carbon monoxide alarms on every level of your home is the single most important thing you can do to protect yourself and your family", says McLeieer. The Cranston Fire Department and Red Cross volunteers will visit homes this Monday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.as part of the Red Cross Home Fire Campaign.

Use the smoke alarm's hush feature to silence nuisance alarms.

For added protection, it recommends installing smoke alarms inside all bedrooms.

"The life expectancy of smoke alarms is generally 10 years, after which point their sensors can begin to lose sensitivity", Consumer Reports said in a Q-and-A response. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the answer is likely yes: NFPA research shows that most American homes have at least one. Smoke alarms should also be tested monthly. "We see too many disabled smoke alarms in fires when people really needed them to work".

"Smoke coming from the ground floor will take longer to reach a smoke alarm on another floor, and vice versa". Special smoke alarms are also available for those who are deaf or hearing-impaired.

For people that are unable to buy or install alarms, Temple Fire and Rescue offers free installation services.

In order to escape safely from a fire and carbon monoxide, you need to be provided with an early warning and know what to do when the alarms sound.

Smoke rises, so the ideal location for a smoke alarm is on the ceiling - in the center of the room is best.
