- The different sounds smoke and carbon monoxide alarms make
- How to keep yourself and your family safe when an alarm sounds
- Smoke alarms and alert devices that can help people who are hard of hearing
- When an alarm makes noises – a beeping sound or chirping sound – you must take action

What if someone in my home is deaf or hard of hearing?
There are smoke alarms and alert devices that alert people who are deaf or hard of hearing. These devices include strobe lights that flash to alert people when the smoke alarm sounds. Pillow or bed shakers designed to work with your smoke alarm also can be purchased and installed. For more information on this important topic, CLICK HERE.
