Whether you live in an apartment or a private home, having quality, effective smoke alarms are important. Even if there’s a building-wide fire alarm system in place in  your apartment building, you should install quality smoke alarms in  your apartment. If possible, install one outside your apartment door in the hallway, just in case the fire building-wide fire alarm system is not working. The life you save may be that of your own and/or a loved one.
