A mother's voice could be the key to saving a child's life in the event of a fire.
In a new study, researchers at Nationwide Children's Hospital tested various smoke alarms. Results showed that children would sleep up to five minutes through a loud, high-pitched traditional tone alarm which is common in most homes.
Smoke alarms that used their mother's voice, woke children up almost immediately.
Experts also recommend that parents have a plan, practice fire drills at home twice a year, and make sure the adults are responsible for waking up children and getting them out of the house.
