Fire Prevention Week


This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign,
“Don’t Wait – Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every
10 Years,” represents the final year of our three-year effort
to educate the public about basic but essential elements of
smoke alarm safety.

Why focus on smoke alarms three years in a row? Because NFPA’s survey data
shows that the public has many misconceptions about smoke alarms, which may
put them at increased risk in the event of a home fire. For example, only a small
percentage of people know how old their smoke alarms are, or how often
they need to be replaced.

As a result of those and related findings, we’re addressing smoke alarm
replacement this year with a focus on these key messages:

  • Smoke alarms should be replaced every 10 years.
  • Make sure you know how old all the smoke alarms are in your home.
  • To find out how old a smoke alarm is, look at the date of manufacture on
    the back of the alarm; the alarm should be replaced 10 years from that date.
