Who are the People in Your Neighbourhood? Fire Safety

Safety can never be taken for granted. No matter how much we would like winter chills to be over, homes continue to have the use of fuel - fired appliances for heat and comfort. We need to protect those we care about. Installation and regular maintenance of smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors are critical.

Carbon monoxide alarms do not last forever. They need to be replaced every 7 - 10 years (per manufacturer).

If your CO alarm sounds, get out of your home immediately and call 911 from a safe place .

The most common symptoms of CO poisoning are headache, dizziness, weakness, upset stomach, vomiting, chest pain and confusion. If you breathe in a lot of CO, it can make you pass out or kill you. The human body is most vulnerable to the effects of carbon monoxide during sleeping hours. To work properly the unit must not be blocked by furniture or draperies. Carbon Monoxide is virtually the same weight as air and therefore the alarm protects you in a high or low location. Remember, safety NEVER takes a holiday. Educate yourself, loved ones, and your communities. You can refer to more public safety issues on the website, including safety notices, recalls and buyer beware notices here:
