Check and test the smoke detectors.
Smoke detectors reduce fire deaths and injuries by alerting you immediately when a fire breaks out. Follow these steps to make sure your smoke detectors are ready to go:
- Pre-check: Verify your smoke detectors are in compliance with the current laws and regulations
- Prepare: Let residents and or tenants know about testing ahead of time, as the device emits a potentially alarming noise if unexpected
- Perform the test:
- Residential: Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for testing
- Commercial: Contact a member of our team to get your testing scheduled
If you encounter any issues when trying to test your smoke detector, replace it as soon as possible.
Inspect the sprinkler systems.
Although a visual inspection can be done at any time of the year, experts recommend a professional inspection in the spring, checking for any damage the cold winter weather may have caused.
