Save Lives and Protect Your Home with Kidde Worry-Free Smoke Alarms
As parents, we want the best for our family. I know that as a mother, I want to make sure I’m doing everything in my power to protect them and keep them safe. One of the ways we protect our family and personal possessions is by installing smoke alarms throughout our home. It’s amazing how quickly a disaster can happen – so why not prevent it?
Already this year, the media has reported 71 residential fire deaths in California. To help keep families safer, California has passed a new law regarding smoke and combination alarms. As of July 1st, any battery-powered smoke alarm or combination (smoke and carbon monoxide) alarm approved for sale by the state fire marshal must be powered by a sealed, 10-year battery. This law will also hopefully decrease the likelihood that a firefighter would be injured or killed trying to save a life.
Kidde Worry-Free Smoke Alarms and Combination Alarms comply with the new law and are available throughout the state. In addition to possibly saving a life, alarms like the Kidde Worry-Free line save consumers about $40 in battery costs over the life of one alarm – and remove the burden of remembering to change batteries every six months!
Kidde Worry-Free Smoke Alarms offer a variety of benefits to the millions of Americans who rely on continuous battery-powered smoke and fire detection in their homes. The alarms are powered by sealed, long-life lithium batteries for 10 years (the life of the alarm), meaning they are always on. Each of the four alarms includes features designed to address location-specific safety needs such as a light in the hallway for egress and innovative smart sensing technology for kitchens to minimize nuisance alarms caused by cooking.
Long-life Sealed Lithium Battery: Why It’s Needed
While smoke alarms are installed in 96 percent of US homes, 20 percent of those alarms are not functioning, mainly due to dead or missing batteries. Moreover, two-thirds of residential fire deaths occur in homes without smoke alarms or in homes with non-functioning smoke alarms. With a sealed, long-life lithium battery smoke alarm, homeowners can enjoy peace of mind knowing that their homes’ smoke alarms are always on – operating 24 hours per day, seven days per week for 10 years – that’s a decade of hassle-free protection. The National Fire Protection Association recommends replacing smoke alarms every 10 years.
