October is Fire Prevention Month and this year, the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) theme is “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety!” So what do those sounds your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms make mean? Find out by watching the video below!
Is there a beep or a chirp coming out of your smoke or carbon monoxide alarm? What does it all mean? Knowing the difference can save you, your home, and your family! Make sure everyone in the home understands the sounds of the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and knows how to respond. Learn the sounds of your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms by checking the user guide or search the brand and model online. - NFPA

***If an event is accepted and scheduled through our Fire and Life Safety Educator, please know that although our units will plan on attending your event, our unit may need to abruptly leave your event, may be late or may not be able to attend your event at all depending on the calls we receive on that day/time. We will attempt to contact you if possible. We hope you can appreciate that responding to calls will always be our priority. ***
