If the alarm goes off because
it is near a stove, then it should be removed and re-installed
farther away from the stove. Opening the kitchen window also
helps remove the smoke and prevents a sensitive alarm from going
off unnecessarily. Just simple things like these might help
prevent a tragedy. Sleeping children can't protect themselves,
so it's up to us adults to do so.
