• Smoke is a poison that can kill you. Without working smoke alarms, you may not wake up from the smoke. It can kill you while you are asleep. Home fires at night or when people are sleeping are the most dangerous. Working smoke alarms will alert you if there is a fire and will give you more time to escape.
