Be aware: Kids can sleep through smoke alarms

Most kids sleep like a baby, and that can be very dangerous.

NBC Nightly News ran a piece Friday evening on smoke detectors. I was amazed to see three children sleep right through the piercing sound of a smoke detector going off in the hall outside their rooms.

The message? If the detector goes off, you’ve got to get to the kids first. Even if you have a family evacuation plan, it won’t work if it depends on children responding to the alarm.
