Week 1 - Smoke Alarms and 9-volt Battery Safety

 Smoke alarms should be installed in every sleeping room, outside each separate sleeping area, on every level of the home, including the basement. The larger the home is, the more smoke alarms required. Interconnected smoke alarms, when one smoke alarm sounds they all sound, provide the best protection. For the best protection, use ionization smoke alarms and photoelectric smoke alarms or combination ionization-photoelectric alarms.

 Test your smoke alarms monthly using the “test” button. Make sure everybody in your home knows the sound of a smoke alarm and what to do when they hear it. If there are deaf people or people hard of hearing you should have alert devices that meet their needs.

 Replacing your smoke alarms should occur every 10 years. If the alar, does not respond after a new battery is installed, it needs to be replaced even if it has not been 10 years since the last replacement.

 Rental homes are required to have working smoke alarms. Landlords are required to provide smoke alarms under Georgia Law (O.C.G.A 25-2-40).

9-Volt Battery Safety:

 9-volt batteries can be dangerous because the positive and negative ends of the battery are close together. If a metal object touches both ends, it can cause a short circuit, which can cause enough heat to start a fire. Even if you think the battery is weak, it can still start a fire. Throwing away a 9V battery along with other metal objects can start a fire as well. These batteries need to stay in the packaging until use. If the battery is loose, keep the ends covered with masking, duct, or electrical tape. They should also be stored standing up.

 The way you dispose of 9-volt batteries is not throwing them in the trash. They can be taken to a collection site for household hazardous waste. Even when disposing of in this way, be sure to cover the ends with masking, duct, or electrical tape.
