Smoke detectors and fire extinguisher S/O

A post on here got me thinking.....

How many of you have smoke detectors and fire extinguishers in your house?

Dh, the kids and I moved into our current home 4 yrs ago.  It's an old run-down family owned house and I just realized that our only smoke detector (in a 2 story 4 bedroom house) is the same olive green color as stoves from the 70's.  I'd bet a lot of money that it doesn't work and at 40, I don't think I've ever owned a fire extinguisher.  I've also never been the victim of a fire.

We have smoke alarms in all the bedrooms, hallway and main living area. We also have 2 fire extinguishers. The fire extinguishers are required by our home owners insurance.

There's smoke detectors in every room and a carbon monoxide detector in our living room. We have one fire extinguisher in the kitchen and one in the front hall closet.
