Fire Prevention Week
It's Fire Prevention Week from the National Fire Protection Association. This year’s campaign is:
“Don’t Wait – Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years
Only a small percentage of people know how old their smoke alarms are, or how often they need to be replaced. As a result , the National Fire Prevention Association is campaigning to educate the public about smoke alarm replacement.
• Smoke alarms should be replaced every 10 years. • Make sure you know how old all the smoke alarms are in your home. • To find out how old a smoke alarm is, look at the date of manufacture on the back of the alarm; the alarm should be replaced 10 years from that date.
