The importance of having monitored smoke detectors
Don't let safety slip your mind. Home fires pose a real threat, taking the lives of more than 350 Canadians each year1.
Monitored smoke detectors are a vital safety device to help protect your home, family and pets. Did you know...
Home fires and monitored smoke detectors
Most fires occur at night, when people are sleeping. If you are in a deep sleep on the second floor of your home and a fire breaks out in the basement or first floor, the beeping of an unmonitored alarm may not wake you. This means you may not have the time to get your family out safely or have ample time to call for help. What if you are already succumbing to smoke inhalation? One quarter of home fire deaths result from fires in homes in which smoke detectors are present, but fail to operate2.
Smoke detectors require maintenance
Smoke detectors should be placed outside every bedroom, in hallways, and on every story of your home. To ensure they work properly they require regular testing and cleaning, as well as replacement of both batteries and the unit. When a retail smoke detector's battery needs changing, it will sound with a battery alert. Often, people shut off their detector to stop the beeping and then forget about it. While monitored detectors still require battery changes, you will receive reminders from us.
Monitored smoke detectors = savings
Insurance companies may offer discounted rates to homes with a monitored smoke detector service*. Monitored smoke detectors can help prevent substantial loss in situations that a non-monitored smoke detector simply cannot. A fire can rob you of your possessions, from valuables like furniture, art and jewelry to irreplaceable photographs.
