Smoke alarms save lives!
Smoke alarms warn you that there is a fire before you see, hear, or smell it. It can be the difference between life and death in the event of a fire. Statistics from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) show that properly working smoke detectors can cut the chance of dying in a fire almost in half. Since the peak of summer is a time when high temperatures turn into a fire hazard, UAE residents should gear up on precautionary steps to avoid fatal accidents by testing the smoke alarms regularly and never remove or disable them. If a smoke alarm "chirps," it is indicating a low battery, and the battery must be replaced immediately. Do not be complacent about your smoke alarm, they must be properly maintained.
