FROM THE CEILING TO THE WALL!
Did you know that in addition to the ceiling, smoke alarms can be placed high on the wall? The NFPA recommends that wall-mounted smoke alarms should be installed four to 12 inches away from the ceiling or corners.
Choosing the Right Smoke Alarm
According to a study by National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), an estimated 890 lives could be saved each year in the United States if all homes had working smoke alarms. First Alert, one of the most recognized safety brands in America, offers an array of smoke alarms to meet almost any family’s needs.
