“This is your monthly reminder to test your smoke alarm by pushing the test button. If you don’t hear a sound, replace the alarm.

Remember that smoke alarms do not last forever - replace your alarms after 10 years. Remove your alarm from the wall or ceiling and look at the back of the alarm for the date of manufacture."

Sample Message:

"Remember to test your carbon monoxide (CO) detectors every month. For the best protection, interconnect all CO alarms throughout the home. When one sounds, they all sound.

CO poisoning can be confused with flu symptoms, food poisoning and other illnesses. Some symptoms include shortness of breath, nausea, dizziness, lightheadedness or headaches. High levels of CO can be fatal, causing death within minutes.

A person can be poisoned by a small amount of CO over a longer period of time or by a large amount of CO over a shorter amount of time."
