During Fire Prevention Week, October 3-9th, the Township of Madawaska Valley Fire Department reminds residents to “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety”
This year’s theme is “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety.” The Township of Madawaska Valley Fire Department encourages residents to be aware of the sounds of fire safety.
What do the sounds mean? Is there a beep or a chirp coming out of your smoke or carbon monoxide alarm? Knowing the difference can save you, your home, and your family.
It’s important to learn the different sounds of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. When an alarm makes noise—a beeping sound or a chirping sound—you must take action! Make sure everyone in the home understands the sounds of the alarms and knows how to respond. To learn the sounds of your specific smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, check the manufacturer’s instructions that came in the box, or search the brand and model online.
The Township of Madawaska Valley Fire Department wants to share safety tips to help you “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety.”
