When 10 Years Is Too Old

Many homes in Montgomery County have smoke alarms that are too old. All smoke alarms are manufactured to last 10 years. Then they need to be replaced. Working smoke alarms can provide the critical early warning needed to save lives.

What brand and model new alarm do you reccommend and where can we purchase them. Thank you.

As a government entity, we can not promote a particular brand or store. I would just look for a UL listed, that has both ionization and photoelectric detection and inter-connectivity (if one smoke alarm sounds they all do). You can find these alarms at most major US hardware and retail stores.
