Keep Your Family Safe and Make Sure Your Smoke Alarm Works
Nearly two thirds of home fire deaths result from fires in homes with no working smoke alarms. To help reduce your chances of becoming a victim, CAL FIRE reminds you to make sure you have working smoke alarms in your home. A little attention to these devises goes a long way to increasing your chance of surviving a devastating fire.
Smoke alarm safety tips:
•Place properly installed and maintained smoke alarms both inside and outside of sleeping areas and on every level of your home.
•Interconnected smoke alarms are best, because if one sounds, they all sound.
•Get smoke alarms that can sound fast to all types of fires. CAL FIRE recommends that every residence and place where people sleep be equipped with ionization and photoelectric smoke alarms or dual sensor smoke alarms, which contain both ionization and photoelectric smoke sensors.
•Inspect, test and clean smoke alarms and change alkaline batteries at least once every year, or when the alarm signals (“chirps”) the end of the battery life. You can use a date you already know, like your birthday or when you change your clocks as a reminder.
•Follow manufacturer’s instructions if you have a 10-year smoke alarm which uses a long-life lithium battery.
•Never paint over a smoke alarm.
•Replace your smoke alarm at least every ten years.
•Practice exit drills so everyone understands what to do when they hear a smoke alarm.
Keep your smoke alarm working, NEVER REMOVE BATTERIES FROM YOUR ALARM.
NORTH SAN JUAN FIRE… ‘WANTS YOU’
Do you recycle printer cartridges?
Probably not, and they end up in the trash like ours used to. But no more! If you will drop off used cartridges (any brand or size) at Station 3 on Tyler Foote, the department will recycle them for you, and will receive three bucks each in the process! So make a painless contribution to your firefighters! Every little bit adds up and really helps!
