Fire safety

Protect your family from carbon monoxide
The safe use and proper installation of household appliances that burn fossil fuels 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; install at least one carbon monoxide detector near bed rooms on every level of your home. Carbon monoxide detectors should be replaced every seven years or as recommended by the manufacturer. For more information contact the Schriever Fire Prevention Office at 567-3370. 

Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives
Test your smoke alarm every month. Buy a smoke alarm at any hardware or discount store to protect your family. Install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement. Keep it free of dust and replace the battery at least once a year. Smoke alarms themselves should be replaced every ten years or as recommended by the manufacturer. For more information contact the Schriever Fire Prevention Office at 567-3370.
