What should I do if my smoke detector goes off in the middle of the night?
You should roll out of bed and crawl to the nearest exit and leave the building. Call 911 and notify the Fire Department you have a possible fire in your home.

Today, a home can become untenable within 4 minutes because of smoke; you may be unable to escape a burning home in less than one minute. Don’t take chances. Firefighters will quickly respond and investigate the cause of the alarm.

If your home is on fire get out as quickly as you can and call 911 from a neighbor’s home. You should also have a family meeting place to ensure everyone got out safely.
