SMOKE ALARM ACTIVATION
What to do When the Alarm Sounds!
Smoke alarm pattern is 3 long beeps, repeating, followed
by “Fire! Feu!”. Strobe will flash once per second.
NEVER IGNORE THE SOUND OF THE ALARM!
Smoke alarms are designed to minimize false alarms. Cigarette
smoke will not normally set off the alarm, unless the smoke is
blown directly into the alarm. This unit contains nuisance alarm
protection, which will reduce the impact of cooking particles.
However, large quantities of combustible particles from spills
or broiling could still cause the unit to alarm. Careful location
of the unit away from the kitchen area will give the maximum
nuisance alarm protection. Combustion particles from cooking
may set off the alarm if located too close to the cooking area.
Large quantities of combustible particles are generated from
spills or when broiling. Using the fan on a range hood which
vents to the outside (non- recirculating type) will also help
remove these combustible products from the kitchen.If the
alarm sounds, check for fires first.
If a fire is discovered follow these steps. Become thoroughly
familiar with these items, and review with all family members!
• Alert small children in the home as well as anyone else
that might have difficulty recognizing the importance of
the alarm sounding or that might have difficulty leaving
the area without help.
• Leave immediately by your escape plan. Every second
counts, so don’t waste time getting dressed or picking
up valuables.
• In leaving, don’t open any inside door without first
feeling its surface. If hot, or if you see smoke seeping
through cracks, don’t open that door! Instead, use your
alternate exit. If the inside of the door is cool, place your
shoulder against it, open it slightly and be ready to slam
it shut if heat and smoke rush in.
SMOKE ALARM ACTIVATION
What to do When the Alarm Sounds!
Smoke alarm pattern is 3 long beeps, repeating, followed
by “Fire! Feu!”. Strobe will flash once per second.
• If the escape route requires you to go through smoke, stay
close to the floor where the air is cleaner. Crawl if necessary,
and breathe shallowly through a cloth, wet if possible.
• Once outside, go to your selected meeting place and make
sure everyone is there.
• Call the fire department from your cell phone outside, or
from your neighbor’s home-not from yours!
• Don’t return to your home until the fire officials say that it is
all right to do so.
• Do not reenter under any circumstance until fire officials say
that it is safe to do so.
• There are situations where a smoke alarm may not be
effective to protect against fire as stated in the NFPA
Standard 72. For instance:
a) smoking in bed
b) leaving children home alone
c) cleaning with flammable liquids, such as gasoline
d) fires where the victim is intimate with a flaming initiated
fire; for example, when a person’s clothes catch fire
while cooking
CARBON MONOXIDE ALARM ACTIVATION
What to do When the Alarm Sounds!
WARNING: This alarm DOES NOT detect
Carbon Monoxide (CO) and is not a substitute
for owning a Carbon Monoxide Alarm.
If CO is detected from any other unit in an interconnected
system, the carbon monoxide (CO) alarm pattern will sound
4 quick beeps in time with red LED flashes, repeating every
5 seconds, followed by “Warning! Carbon Monoxide! Monoxyde
de carbone!” The strobe will flash 4 times every 5 seconds.
The smoke alarm takes precedence when both smoke
and carbon monoxide are present.
Carbon Monoxide Alarm Procedure
WARNING: Activation of the CO Alarm
indicates the presence of Carbon Monoxide (CO)
which can kill you.
1) Immediately move to fresh air – outdoors or by an open
door/window. Do a head count to check that all persons are
accounted for. Do not re-enter the premises nor move away from
the open door/window until the emergency services responders
have arrived, the premises have been aired out, and your alarm
remains in its normal condition.
2) Call your local emergency service.
(fire department or 911)
PHONE NUMBER
Never restart the source of a CO problem until it has been
corrected. Never ignore the sound of the alarm!
If the unit is sounding a CO alarm signal, pressing the Test/
Hush button on this unit will do nothing. Pressing the Test/
Hush button on the initiating CO or Combination alarm unit
will terminate the CO alarm on all interconnected units. If
the CO condition that caused the alarm in the first place
continues, the initiating alarm unit will reactivate in alarm
mode. If the unit goes into alarm mode again within six
minutes, it is sensing high levels of CO which can quickly
become a dangerous situation.

3. Limitations of Smoke Alarms
WARNING: PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND THOROUGHLY
• NFPA 72 states: Life safety from fire in residential occupancies is based
primarily on early notification to occupants of the need to escape,
followed by the appropriate egress actions by those occupants.
• Fire warning systems for dwelling units are capable of protecting about
half of the occupants in potentially fatal fires. Victims are often intimate
with the fire, too old or young, or physically or mentally impaired such
that they cannot escape even when warned early enough that escape
should be possible. For these people, other strategies such as protectionin-place or assisted escape or rescue are necessary.
• Leading authorities recommend that both ionization and photoelectric
smoke alarms be installed to help ensure maximum detection of
the various types of fires that can occur within the home. Ionization
sensing alarms may detect invisible fire particles (associated with
fast flaming fires) sooner than photoelectric alarms. Photoelectric
sensing alarms may detect visible fire particles (associated with slow
smouldering fires) sooner than ionization alarms.
• A battery powered alarm must have a battery of the specified type,
in good condition and installed properly. This model is AC powered
with a sealed backup battery.
• Smoke alarms must be tested regularly to make sure the battery and
the alarm circuits are in good operating condition.
• Smoke alarms cannot provide an alarm if smoke does not reach
the alarm. Therefore, smoke alarms may not sense fires starting in
chimneys, walls, on roofs, on the other side of a closed door or on a
different floor.
• If the alarm is located outside the bedroom or on a different floor, it
may not wake up a sound sleeper.
• The use of alcohol or drugs may also impair one’s ability to hear the
smoke alarm. For maximum protection, a smoke alarm should be
installed in each sleeping area on every level of a home.
• Although smoke alarms can help save lives by providing an early
warning of a fire, they are not a substitute for an insurance policy.
Home owners, landlords and tenants should have adequate insurance
to protect their lives and property.

For rooms larger than 250 sq. ft. (4.27 m x 4.88 m – 14’ x 16’) the
notification device should be located within 4.88 m (16’) of the pillow
when located in a sleeping area.
Locate the first strobe/smoke alarm in the bedroom in which the
hearing impaired individual sleeps. Try to monitor the exit path, as the
bedrooms are usually farthest from the exit. Locate the first alarm in
the immediate area of the bedrooms. If more than one sleeping area
exists, locate additional alarms in each sleeping area (Figure 1A).
Locate additional strobe lights or combination smoke/strobe alarms
in any lived-in room where a hearing impaired individual would
need to be notified of an alarm condition and near any stairway as
stairways act like chimneys for smoke and heat.
Locate at least one alarm on every floor level (Figure 1B).
Locate an alarm in every Sleeping Room.
Locate an alarm in every room where electrical appliances are
operated (i.e. portable heaters or humidifiers).
Locate an alarm in every room where someone sleeps with the
door closed. The closed door may prevent an alarm not located in
that room from waking the sleeper.
Smoke, heat, and combustion products rise to the ceiling and
spread horizontally. Mounting the smoke alarm on the ceiling in
the center of the room places it closest to all points in the room.
Ceiling mounting is preferred in ordinary residential construction.
When mounting an alarm on the ceiling, locate it at a minimum of
10 cm (4”) from the side wall (Figure 2A).
When mounting the alarm on the wall, use an inside wall with
the top edge of the alarm at a minimum of 10 cm (4”) and a
maximum of 30.5 cm (12”) below the ceiling (Figure 2A).
Put smoke alarms at both ends of a bedroom hallway or large
room if the hallway or room is more than 9.1 m (30’) long.
For mobile home installation, select locations carefully to avoid
thermal barriers that may form at the ceiling. For more details, see
Mobile Homes.

4. Recommended Locations
Mobile Homes
Modern mobile homes have been designed to be energy efficient. Install
smoke alarms as recommended in Figure 2A.
In older mobile homes that are not well insulated compared to present
standards, extreme heat or cold can be transferred from the outside to the
inside through poorly insulated walls and roof. This may create a thermal
barrier that can prevent the smoke from reaching an alarm mounted on the
ceiling. In such units, install the smoke alarm on an inside wall with the top
edge of the alarm at a minimum of 10 cm (4”) and a maximum of 30.5 cm
(12”) below the ceiling (Figure 2A).
If you are not sure about the insulation in your mobile home, or if you notice
that the outer walls and ceiling are either hot or cold, install the alarm on an
inside wall. For minimum protection, install at least one alarm close to the
bedrooms. For additional protection, see Figure 1A.
WARNING: Test your smoke alarm operation after mobile
home has been in storage or unoccupied, and at least once a
week during use.
5. Locations to Avoid
•
•
•
•
•
Do not place in direct sunlight or install near high ambient light
areas; the bright light may reduce one’s ability to notice the strobe
light.
Extreme temperatures may affect the sensitivity of the alarm.
Do not install in areas where the temperature is colder than
4.4°C (40°F) or hotter than 37.8°C (100°F), such as garages and
unfinished attics.
Do not install in areas where the relative humidity (RH) is greater
than 95%, non-condensing. Very humid areas, with moisture or
steam, can cause nuisance alarms.
Avoid outdoor locations (this device is not listed for outdoor use).
Do not install within 0.9 m (3’) of the following: The door to a
kitchen, or a bathroom that contains a tub or shower, forced air
supply ducts used for heating or cooling, ceiling or whole house
ventilating fans, or other high air-flow areas.
5. Locations to Avoid
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not place the alarm where drapes or other objects will block
the sensor. Smoke must be able to reach the sensor to accurately
detect conditions.
Do not install in peaks of vaulted ceilings. In this area install as
shown in Figures 2B and 2C.
Install at least 30.5 cm (12”) away from fluorescent lights as
electronic noise may cause nuisance alarms.
Keep out of insect infested areas. Avoid excessively dusty, dirty or
greasy areas. Dust particles may cause nuisance alarms or failure
to alarm.
Normal cooking may cause nuisance alarms. If a kitchen alarm
is desired, it should have an alarm silence feature or be a
photoelectric type.
Do not install within 5 ft of heating or cooking appliances.
6. Installation / Mounting Instructions
Wiring Instructions:
Wiring Requirements
• This smoke alarm should be installed on a CSA listed or recognized
junction box. All connections should be made by a qualified electrician
and all wiring used shall be in accordance with codes having
jurisdiction in your area. The multiple station interconnect wiring
to the alarms must be run in the same raceway or cable as the AC
power wiring. In addition, the resistance of the interconnect wiring
shall be a maximum of 10 ohms.
• The appropriate power source is 120 V AC Single Phase supplied from
a non-switchable circuit, which is not protected by a ground fault
interrupter.
• Smoke alarms are not to be used with detector guards unless the
combination (alarm and guard) has been evaluated and found suitable
for that purpose.
WARNING: The alarm cannot be operated from power derived
from a square wave, modified square wave or modified sine wave,
inverter. These types of inverters are sometimes used to supply power
to the structure in off grid installations, such as solar or wind derived
power sources. These power sources produce high peak voltages that
will damage the alarm.
6. Installation / Mounting Instructions
WIRING INSTRUCTIONS FOR AC HARNESS
! CAUTION! TURN OFF THE MAIN POWER TO THE CIRCUIT
BEFORE WIRING THE ALARM.
• For alarms that are used as single station, DO NOT CONNECT THE RED WIRE
TO ANYTHING. Leave the red wire insulating cap in place to make certain
that the red wire cannot contact any metal parts or the electrical box.
• When alarms are interconnected, all interconnected units must be
powered from a single circuit.
• A maximum of 24 Kidde Safety devices may be interconnected in
a multiple station arrangement. The interconnect system should
not exceed the NFPA interconnect limit of 12 smoke alarms and/or
18 alarms total (smoke, CO, Smoke/CO Combination, heat detector,
etc.). With 18 alarms interconnected, it is still possible to interconnect
up to a total of 6 remote signaling devices and /or relay modules (see
below for details on interconnecting Kidde devices).
• The following models can be interconnected using the standard AC
wiring interconnect: i12020CA, i12020ACA, i12040CA, i12040ACA,

6. Installation / Mounting Instructions
• Figure 3 illustrates interconnection wiring. Improper connection may result in damage to the alarm, failure to operate, or a shock hazard.
• Make certain alarms are wired to a continuous (non-switched) power line. NOTE: Use standard CSA Listed household wire (as required by local codes) available at all electrical supply stores and most hardware stores.
• After selecting the proper location for your Smoke/CO Alarm, as
described in RECOMMENDED LOCATIONS, and wiring the AC Quick
Connect Harness as described in the WIRING INSTRUCTIONS (NOTE:
AC power should be turned off at this stage), attach the mounting
bracket to the electrical box. To ensure aesthetic alignment of the
alarm with the hallway, or wall, the “A” line on the mounting
bracket must be parallel with the hallway when ceiling mounted, or
horizontal when wall mounted.
Activating The Alarm
1.
After installation of the mounting bracket, attach the
AC quick connect harness to the unit.
• If AC power is on at this time, the unit will chirp once to signal
that power has been applied, and a voice message will prompt
you to push the test button.
• If AC power is on at this time, confirm the green LED is on
constant.
2.
Rotate the unit fully onto the mounting bracket, which will
automatically activate the backup battery.
• NOTE: Attaching AC power first, without using the mounting
bracket, will result in a low battery chirp, and voice message
“Low Battery. Pile Faible.” because the battery backup has
not been activated. Attach unit to mounting bracket very soon
after applying AC power to avoid false low battery notification.
• NOTE: The battery activation is a one-time feature. After
activation, the battery cannot be turned off, and can only
be deactivated at the end of product life. See Section 11:
Deactivation of Alarm.
The alarm is now activated! After installation/activation, test your
alarm as described in Operation and Testing section.
NOTE: The battery activation is a one-time feature. After activation,
the battery cannot be turned off, and can only be deactivated at
the end of product life. See Section 11: Deactivation of Alarm.
Warning: Failure to properly install and activate this alarm
will prevent proper operation of this alarm and will prevent its
response to fire hazards.
7. Operation and Testing
OPERATION: The alarm is operating once it is activated and testing is
complete. When products of combustion, (smoke), are sensed, the unit
sounds a loud 85dB pulsating alarm with voice message. The voice message
for smoke detection is “Fire! Feu!”. The strobe will flash every second. This
will continue until the air is cleared.
Warning: Due to the loudness (85 decibels) of the alarm,
always stand an arm’s length (about 2.5 feet) away from the
unit or use ear protection when testing, and avoid looking at the
bright strobe directly, or cover it with your hand.
Strobe Synchronization
This strobe alarm will automatically synchronize (flash at the same time)
with other P4010ACLEDSCA strobes that are part of the interconnected
system. Synchronization will take up to 20 seconds when in alarm.
Note: The alarms will not synchronize during test mode.
TESTING: Test your alarm by pressing the test button until the unit chirps,
then release the test button. The unit will then emit three long alarm
beeps, followed by the voice message “Fire! Feu!” and a series of strobe
flashes. Alarm, voice, and strobe will activate if the electronic circuitry,
horn, speaker, and battery are working. If the alarm, voice, or strobe do
not activate, the unit must be replaced.
Weekly testing is required to ensure proper operation. Erratic
or low volume sound (or no sound), or no strobe activation from your
alarm may indicate a defective alarm and it should be returned for
service. See deactivation section to determine how to prepare the unit
for shipment or disposal.
Warning: DO NOT use an open flame to test your alarm,
you could damage the alarm or ignite combustible materials and
start a structure fire.
Ambient Light Sensing
During low light ambient conditions, the green LED will reduce in
brightness and intensity. The unit samples the ambient light conditions of
the alarm’s location and, if possible, determines a Night / Day cycle. A valid
Night / Day cycle will inhibit Low Battery chirps at night. It will also inhibit
End of Unit Life chirps at night if the unit is within the first 30 days of the
End of Unit Life period. After 30 days, the chirps will not be inhibited.
WARNING - REPLACE ALARM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE WHEN IN
END OF UNIT LIFE or low battery MODE.
If the unit cannot determine a valid Night / Day cycle because the unit is
located in either a constantly dark or lighted location, Low Battery and End
of Unit Life chirps will not be inhibited. If the unit is moved to a location
that is not constantly dark or lighted, it will determine a Night / Day cycle
because the unit continuously samples ambient light conditions.

9. Nuisance and Hush
This smoke/strobe alarm is designed to minimize nuisance alarms. Cigarette
smoke will not normally cause the unit to alarm, unless the smoke is blown
directly into the alarm. Combustion particles from cooking may set off the
alarm if it is located too close to a cooking appliance. Large quantities of
combustible particles are generated from spills or when broiling. Using the
fan on a range hood which vents to the outside (non-recirculating type)
will also help prevent nuisance alarms from occurring by removing these
combustible products from the kitchen.
If the source of a smoke alarm is immediately known (3 long beeps with
the voice message “Fire! Feu!”and a strobe flash every second), you can
use the Hush feature to silence the alarm for approx. 8-10 minutes. If no
fire is present, check to see if one of the reasons listed in “Locations to
avoid” may have caused the alarm. If a fire is discovered, get out and call
the fire department.
Hush® Control: Hush® control is extremely useful in a kitchen area
or other area prone to nuisance alarms. The Hush® feature has the
capability of temporarily desensitizing the alarm circuit for approximately
8-10 minutes.
This feature is to be used only when a known alarm condition,
such as smoke from cooking, activates the alarm. The smoke alarm
is desensitized by pushing the Test/Hush button on the initiating
smoke alarm cover. If the smoke is not too dense, the initiating
alarm will silence immediately with the voice message “Hush mode
activated”and the red LED blinks every 2 seconds. This indicates that
the alarm is in a temporarily desensitized condition (pushing the Test/
Hush button on any unit other than the initiating alarm unit will do
nothing.).
The smoke alarm will automatically reset after approximately
8-10 minutes and sound the alarm and issue a voice prompt stating
“Fire! Feu!” and the strobe will flash once per second if particles of
combustion are still present.
The Hush® feature can be used repeatedly until the air has been cleared of
the condition causing the alarm. Pushing the Test/Hush button on the alarm
will end the temporarily desensitized period, resulting in the voice message
“Hush Mode Cancelled. Mode Hush annulé.”
If the smoke is not too dense, after 10 minutes the alarm will return to
normal operation.
NOTE: Dense smoke will override the Hush® feature and sound a
continuous alarm and the strobe will flash once per second.
! CAUTION: Before using the alarm Hush® feature, identify the
source of the smoke and be certain safe conditions exist.
10. Battery
BATTERY ACTIVATION AND DEACTIVATION
NOTE: This alarm is powered by 120 V AC with a sealed lithium
battery system. No battery installation or replacement is
necessary for the life of the alarm.
IMPORTANT: Constant exposure to high or low humidity may reduce
battery life.
WARNING! DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPEN THE ALARM
FOR ANY REASON!
Do not try to repair the smoke alarm yourself. No serviceable parts
included.
Low battery: This alarm is equipped with a low battery monitor
circuit. While powered by AC, the amber LED will blink 2 times a
second, and the unit will chirp once a minute, followed by the voice
message “Low Battery! Pile Faible!” When powered in DC Battery
Backup mode, the alarm will continue to chirp and blink every 60
seconds, but the voice message will occur once every 15 minutes. This
will continue for a minimum of seven (7) days in DC Battery Backup
mode.
THE UNIT MUST BE DEACTIVATED (see “Deactivation of Alarm”
section) and replaced within 7 days of the first occurrence
of the “Low Battery Warning” to provide continuous alarm
protection.
11. Deactivation of Alarm
WARNING!
• Deactivation of the alarm is permanent. Once the alarm has
been deactivated, it cannot be reactivated!
• Once deactivated, the alarm will NO LONGER DETECT
SMOKE.
• Once the alarm is deactivated the battery will be depleted
and the alarm will no longer function.
• Once the alarm has been deactivated, it cannot be mounted
onto the mounting plate or reactivated.
To Deactivate The Alarm:
• Rotate the alarm counterclockwise to
remove it from the mounting plate.
• Use a screwdriver to break off the
plastic tab as indicated to allow
deactivation.
• After the tab is broken, use the
screwdriver to turn the slotted arrow
to the “DEACTIVATE” location. This
will deactivate the alarm, stop the
low battery or end of life “chirps”
and render the alarm safe for
disposal by draining the battery.
Plastic tab
WARNING! Failure to DEACTIVATE alarm as instructed prior
to disposal may create potential for lithium battery related fire or
hazard.
12. Maintenance
Your alarm should be cleaned at least once a year
You can clean the interior of your alarm (sensing chamber) by using
compressed air or a vacuum cleaner hose and blowing or vacuuming
through the openings around the perimeter of the alarm. The outside of
the alarm can be wiped with a damp cloth. Use only water to dampen
the cloth, use of detergents or cleaners could damage the alarm.
If the alarm is in Fault mode and the amber LED is blinking a fault code
of 10 flashes, the alarm may be in need of cleaning. After cleaning,
press the Test/Hush button. If the fault does not clear, the alarm needs
to be replaced.
• Never use detergent or other solvents to clean the unit.
• A
void spraying air freshener, hair spray, or other aerosols near
the alarm.
• Do not paint the unit. Paint will seal the vents and interfere with
the sensor’s ability to detect smoke.
• Never attempt to disassemble the unit or clean inside. This action
will void your warranty.
13. Good Safety Habits
WARNING: Reinstall the Strobe/Smoke Alarm as soon as
possible to assure continuous protection.
Develop and practice a plan of escape!
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Install and maintain fire extinguishers on every level of the home
and in the kitchen, basement and garage. Know how to use the
fire extinguisher prior to an emergency.
Make a floor plan indicating all doors and windows and at least
two (2) escape routes from each room. Second-storey windows
may need an escape ladder.
Have a family meeting and discuss your escape plan, showing
everyone what to do in case of fire.
Determine a place outside your home where you all can meet if a
fire occurs.
Familiarize everyone with the sound and visual signals of a smoke,
a carbon monoxide and/or strobe alarm and train them to leave
your home when they hear or see it.
Practice a fire drill at least every six months, including fire drills at
night. Ensure that small children hear the alarm and wake when
it sounds. They must wake up in order to execute the escape
plan. Practice allows all occupants to test your plan before an
emergency. You may not be able to reach your children. It is
important they know what to do.
Current studies have shown smoke alarms may not awaken all
sleeping individuals, and that it is the responsibility of individuals
in the household that are capable of assisting others to provide
assistance to those who may not be awakened by the alarm
sound, or to those who may be incapable of safely evacuating the
area unassisted.
13. Good Safety Habits
Alarm Exit Procedure
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Leave immediately by your escape plan. Every second counts, so
don’t waste time getting dressed or picking up valuables.
In leaving, don’t open any inside door without first feeling its
surface. If hot, or if you see smoke seeping through cracks, don’t
open that door! Instead, use your alternate exit. If the inside of
the door is cool, place your shoulder against it, open it slightly and
be ready to slam it shut if heat and smoke rush in.
Stay close to the floor if the air is smokey. If possible do not
breathe too deeply to avoid smoke inhalation. Breathe through a
cloth (preferably wet) if possible.
Once outside, go to your selected meeting place and make sure
everyone is there.
Call the fire department from your neighbor’s home - not from
yours!
Don’t return to your home until the fire officials say that it is all
right to do so.
There are situations where a smoke alarm may not be effective to
protect against fire. For instance:
a) smoking in bed
b) leaving children home alone
c) cleaning with flammable liquids, such as gasoline
d) fires where the victim is intimate with a flaming initiated fire; for
example, when a person’s clothes catch fire while cooking
e) fires where the smoke is prevented from reaching the detector due to a closed door or other obstruction
f) incendiary fires where the fire grows so rapidly that an occupant’s
egress is blocked even with properly located detectors
13. Good Safety Habits
Additional Recommendations
The National Fire Protection Association’s Standard 72 provides the
following information:
Where required by other governing laws, codes, or standards for a
specific type of occupancy, approved single and multiple-station smoke
alarms shall be installed as follows:
1. In all sleeping rooms and guest rooms
2. Outside of each separate dwelling unit sleeping area, within
6.4 m (21’) of any door to a sleeping room, with the distance
measured along a path of travel
3. On every level of a dwelling unit, including basements
4. On every level of a residential board and care occupancy (small
facility), including basements and excluding crawl spaces and
unfinished attics
5. In the living area(s) of a guest suite
6. In the living area(s) of a residential board and care occupancy
(small facility)
Smoke Detection - Are More Smoke Alarms Desirable?
Required number of smoke alarms (as shown in Figure 1A and Figure
1B): The required number of smoke alarms might not provide reliable
early warning protection for those areas separated by a door from the
areas protected by the required smoke alarms. For this reason, it is
recommended that the householder consider the use of additional smoke
alarms for those areas for increased protection.
The additional areas include the basement, bedrooms, dining room,
furnace room, utility room, and hallways not protected by the required
smoke alarms. The installation of the smoke alarms in the kitchen, attic
(finished or unfinished), or garage is normally not recommended, as
these locations occasionally experience conditions that can result in
improper operation.
Alarms should be installed in accordance with the National Fire Protection
Association’s Standard 72 (NFPA, Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02269).
Notify your local fire department and insurance company of your smoke
alarm installation.
