Fire Alarm Smoke detectors are comprised of two basic components, a sensor to detect the smoke and an alarm which is set off to alert people in the home that there is a fire. Most smoke detectors run on a 9 volt battery or a current.

A fire could occur in your home by accident and at any time, day or night, so it is in your best interest, as well as your family’s, to have an early warning system in place. It will, without doubt, give you peace of mind.

It is essential that you have adequate smoke alarms, simply because a fire could occur at any time without warning.
