Should I have a smoke detector in my home?
Yes. It is a proven fact that smoke detectors save lives. Smoke detectors are the best early warning sign for a potential fire in your home. If you live in an apartment or rental home the law requires smoke detectors to be installed by the owner, but it is your responsibility to maintain them, such as changing the batteries twice a year.
