Streetsboro Fire: Committed To Your Safety
STREETSBORO FIRE DEPARTMENT
|It is National Fire Prevention Week 2015! This years' theme is "Hear the BEEP where you SLEEP".
Can you hear a smoke detector sounding from inside your bedroom with the door closed while you sleep? If you're not sure, consider asking a family member or friend to test your ability to hear a smoke detector tonight after going to sleep.
From NFPA.org: "The key message of this year's Fire Prevention Week campaign, October 4-10, is to install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of your home, including the basement. Larger homes may need more alarms".
New homes built in Streetsboro are required to have a smoke detector outside of each sleeping area, inside each bedroom and at least one smoke detector on other levels of the home. Additionally, new homes must have their smoke detectors 'tied together', meaning, when one detector goes into alarm, all detectors go into alarm to alert everyone throughout the home.
Before you go to sleep tonight, test all of your smoke detectors in the home. If a detector doesn't sound, change the batteries. If the detector still doesn't work afterward, it may need replaced. All smoke detectors should be replaced after 10 years of service.
