Importance of Safety Battery Back Ups in Smoke Detectors

In the Chapman case, two boys died and another young boy lost both legs and was burned over 70% of his body because the rental home had a defective First Alert smoke detector that did not have a safety battery backup. There are several types of smoke detectors on the market. You need to be sure the smoke detectors in your home have safety battery backups so that they will work when the power is out such as during a thunder storm.

Common causes of burn injuries include:

  • Portable electric space heaters
  • Gas explosions
  • Defective smoke detectors
  • Operating room or hospital fires
  • Smoking accident
  • Chemical burns and scalding on the work site or laboratory
