Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Smoke Detectors

Smoke detectors save lives, but only if the batteries are in good working order.  Change your batteries twice a year.  A good time to do this is when you change your clocks due to daylight savings time.  If you need help with your smoke detectors or where to place detectors, call the Fire Department for assistance and we will be glad to help!

Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless gas produced when any fossil fuel (gasoline, kerosene, fuel oil, coal, propane, natural gas etc.) is used improperly and burns without sufficient oxygen.  CO poisoning causes flu-like symptoms and in some cases, death.  We recommend installing at least one CO alarm (CO detector) in a hallway near your sleeping area.
