Choose Kidde Worry-Free 10-year sealed battery alarms, so you'll never have to change a battery for the life of the alarm.
Choose the right alarm for the right location in every room and on each level.

Install extinguishers close to exits, and in the kitchen and garage. Include all locations where a fire may start.
Check the gauge monthly to be sure it is pressurized.
Replace fire extinguishers that are over 12 years old or after use.
