Where do I place smoke alarms in a residential dwelling?

Provincial regulations state that smoke alarms should be in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of the home, including the basement. Smoke alarms should be mounted on the ceiling or high on the wall, follow manufacturer’s instructions for installation. Avoid putting smoke alarms too close to bathrooms, windows, ceiling fans or cooking appliances.
