Fire Prevention week safety tips

Fire Prevention week is Oct. 8 – 14. Below are safety tips from the Fire Prevention office.

Working smoke alarms can cut the chance of dying in a fire in half. You can buy a smoke alarm at any hardware or discount store. It's inexpensive protection for you and your family. Install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement. Test it monthly, keep it free of dust and replace the battery at least once a year. Smoke alarms themselves should be replaced after ten years of service, or as recommended by the manufacturer.

Safe use and proper installation of household appliances that burn fossil fuels, (fuel fired furnace, gas water heater, gas stoves and fireplaces) is the best protection you can provide your family.  Carbon monoxide detectors can add a level of protection, but are not a substitute for safe use of equipment.  Have all heating equipment inspected and serviced each year. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installation of carbon monoxide detectors; install at least one detector near sleeping areas and one on every level of your home. For more information, contact the Fire Prevention Office at 567-3370.
