Every year, approximately 80,000 commercial fires cause thousands of injuries and billions of dollars in property damage. In a residential capacity, it is a very unfortunate reality that a considerable number of fire and smoke induced injuries and deaths are due to outdated smoke alarm systems, and missing or dead batteries within smoke alarms. As a result, significant updates have recently been made to Maryland’s Smoke Alarm Law, part of a nationwide trend to ensure new and replacement smoke alarms have the most effective technology available. We are here to help you navigate these new and improved mandates to keep your property up to date, effective and in accordance with the law. An effective fire alarm system can save lives!
Smoke detectors are an important part of an effective fire alarm system. Installing smoke detectors in the areas where fires most commonly first break out is the best way to improve early warning times for faster fire suppression response.
