VOLUME 29 NO. 9 SEPTEMBER 16 - OCTOBER 15, 2016 October = Fire Prevention October is Fire Prevention Month. There is no better time to check all your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure they’re in perfect working order. Indeed, smoke detectors do not work because: • they’ve reached the end of their useful lives, • they need new batteries, or • they have been taken down because of an inordinate amount of false alarms (particularly in kitchens). Without a doubt, working smoke detectors do save lives. Choose from one of our smoke detectors or carbon monoxide alarms that fit your requirements best.
