Smoke Alarms Mackay is a trusted provider of smoke alarm services to the real estate industry.
Here are some helpful facts from Safety SAM as to why smoke alarms are so important:
- More people die from smoke inhalation than flames. Fire can suck all the oxygen from a room and replace it with poisonous smoke and gases before flames even reach a room.
- When you are asleep, your sense of smell also sleeps. The smell of smoke cannot wake you up, a working smoke alarm however can! It is your electronic nose and will alert you if there is smoke from a fire.
- In just minutes a small flame can turn into a major fire and take over a whole room.
- Ionization smoke alarms need to smell smoke before they alert you. Photoelectric smoke alarms can see smoke when it is still just smouldering and can alert everyone in the household.
- Your twice as likely to die in a house fire if you don’t have a working smoke alarm.
- One safety switch is not always enough – you should consider having safety switches installed on all circuits.
- Electrical work is dangerous to do alone – this can cause serious injury or even death. Never DIY with electricity.
