The Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service is asking residents to consider their fire safety plans on the occasion of National Preparedness Month.
Have you tested your smoke alarms lately? Do you know how often you should check your alarms?

Do you have a home escape plan in case of fire? Does it include knowing two ways out in case of fire? Have you held a fire drill to practice the plan?

Are you aware that once smoke alarms are anywhere from eight to ten years old they should be replaced?
The answers to those questions are on the U.S. Fire Administration’s National Preparedness Month website.

The above video is one of a series of three Montgomery County released on Tuesday detailing what to look for in insurance policies in case of an emergency and what to do in case that weather event, fire or other incident hits your home.
