How long is it since you checked that your smoke detectors are functioning properly?
If you don’t have smoke detectors or if your detectors are old (that is, more than 10 years old), get some new ones installed. Either buy and install battery operated detectors yourself following the manufacturer’s instructions, or if you prefer to have your detectors hard wired, get them installed by a qualified electrician.
Similarly, if your detectors are in good condition but it’s been a while since you replaced the batteries, including in hard wired smoke alarms, do it now. Try to replace them at least every six months; use the start and end of daylight saving as your reminder.
