The devices are more important now than ever because construction materials in modern homes can make fires spread even faster.

People who have homes with more than one floor are encouraged to have fire ladders for the rooms upstairs. CO and smoke detectors that are over ten years old should be replaced as they have reached the end of their life expectancy.
