Sparky Says:Workings Smoke & CO Alarms Save Lives!

Working smoke and CO alarms are your first line of defence against a fire or smoke condition in your home. Maintaining your smoke alarms means you may vacuum the device , change the batteries and check the expiry date. Most smoke & CO alarms only have a 5-10 year life and then need replacement. Questions or assistance can be addressed to the Fire Prevention Staff. Stay Safe!
