How do I check my smoke alarm?
Every smoke alarm has a test button, usually in the center of the alarm. Press the test button and hold it for a few seconds. If it is working correctly, the alarm will sound and will automatically stop when you release the button. Remember to test your smoke alarm monthly and change the batteries twice a year.
