Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm Information

Friday, September 1st, 2017

Because smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms are so important to saving lives, we are dedicated to ensuring everyone in the community is educated about them and, in certain cases, receives assistance.

Working smoke alarms more than double your chance of surviving a fire. You probably only have around 2 to 3 minutes to escape a fire in your home, so your smoke alarm is crucial to alerting your family in time to get out safely. You also need to install carbon monoxide alarms if your home has a fireplace, any gas-powered appliances, or an attached garage. But simply having these alarms is not enough! You must test and replace them regularly to ensure they’ll work when your family’s lives depend on it.
