In early-notification news from WPSD News (NBC affiliate) in Paducah, KY, smoke alarms are in the news and not in a good way. The story reports that four recent deaths over the Labor Day holiday weekend could possibly have been prevented if functioning smoke detectors had been in use.

Norris has previously reported on the importance of early notification. Early notification can help mitigate loss to property and life.

The NFPA has some eye-opening info on smoke detectors and other life-safety systems.

Please, make sure you have working smoke detectors in your home or business. Please make sure you have a test and inspection contract in place and also a service and maintenance plan. That way you can rest assured, knowing your loved ones, employees and customers are being kept safe.

Contact Norris to find out how we can help you procure and maintain a life-saving early detection and notification system.
