Fire Prevention Week begins on October 3rd and this year’s theme is “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety”.

2021 09 21 12 39 58

The goal of this year’s campaign is to draw attention to the different sounds smoke and carbon monoxide alarms make and what they mean.

A continued set of three loud beeps on your smoke alarm means that either smoke or fire has been detected so it’s important to get out immediately and call 911.

On the other hand, a chirp every 30 seconds means the battery must be replaced. If the chirping continues after the new battery has been installed, it means the alarm is at the end of its life and needs to be replaced.

Smoke alarms should be located in every bedroom, in the hallway outside sleeping areas and on each level of your home including the basement. Interconnected smoke and carbon monoxide alarms offer the best protection.

It’s important to test your alarms at least once a month by simply pressing the “test” button. Be sure to also blow out any dust or dirt that collects in and around your alarms.

The fire department offers a variety of fire prevention resources to help raise public awareness of fire safety during Fire Prevention Week. If you ever have any questions about fire safety, they’re always happy to help.

Planning for a house fire isn't something most people want to think about but if such an event were to occur, you’d need to act fast so now’s a good time to test out your alarms and discuss fire safety plans with your family.
