People who choose not to add a security alarm often describe their reasoning like this, "I'm not worried about burglary in this area." There are two major problems with this line of thinking:
The second major threat that people often forget about is smoke and fire. In 2012, structural fires in the United States occurred at an average rate of every 66 seconds, according to the NFPA. 2,470 people were killed (not including firefighters), and 14,700 people were injured.
"But I already have a smoke alarm," you might say.
The problem with ordinary smoke alarms is that they are virtually worthless if you are injured, knocked unconscious from smoke inhalation, or not at home. In each of these cases, no one else will know your home is on fire until it's far too late.
This is why it's critical to have a monitored smoke & fire detection system. With an alarm system from Security Doctors, you can have peace of mind that responders will be on their way, even if you're unable to reach the phone or you're not home at all.
When smoke or fire triggers your alarm systems, our 24/7 monitoring center will promptly alert the fire department if we're not able to reach you. That means firefighters and medical responders could be at your home in just minutes.
This is the kind of protection that saves lives – and saves homes. When it comes to fire emergencies, ordinary store-bought smoke detectors simply don't cut it.
