Smoke is rising towards a smoke alarm. We respond to fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Lake County.

Fox Lake Residents Need to Know

Can you recall the last time you replaced the batteries or tested your home’s smoke alarm system in Fox Lake? Working smoke alarms can help you get out of the house quickly when there is a fire. Our team in Northwest Lake County responds to fire damage emergencies every year and offer these tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

Smoke Alarm Safety
  • A closed-door may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of the home. 
  • Smoke alarms should be interconnected. When one sounds, they all sound. 
  • Large homes may need extra smoke alarms
  • Test your smoke alarms at least once a month. Press the test button to be sure the alarm is working.
  • Today’s smoke alarms will be more technologically advanced to respond to a multitude of fire conditions yet mitigate false alarms
  • When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside
  • Replace all smoke alarms in your home every ten years
