Over the past several years, fire alarm systems have advanced in technology to ensure safety in your home for your belongings and family. Certain people may not believe that having a fire alarm system installed in their home is that important; however, with certain statistics, an alarm system can prove to be essential.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, fires in homes with no smoke alarms caused an average of 940 deaths per year and an additional 510 people per year were severely injured in fires in which smoke alarms were present but failed to operate. The lowest amount of fire deaths were reported at homes with hardwired smoke alarms and sprinklers.
With a fire alarm system, it will increase evacuation time for any occupants in the home or building.
