Fire Prevention Week October 3rd -9th

      • A continuous set of three loud beeps—beep, beep, beep—means smoke or fire. Get out, call 9-1-1, and stay out.

      • A single chirp every 30 or 60 seconds means the battery is low and must be changed.

      • All smoke alarms must be replaced after 10 years.

      • Chirping that continues after the battery has been replaced means the alarm is at the end of its life and the unit must be replaced.

      • Make sure your smoke and CO alarms meet the needs of all your family members, including those with sensory or physical disabilities.
