Smoke Alarms

Have you checked your smoke alarm batteries recently?

Genola Fire Department urges you to check your smoke and CO alarms and batteries for the upcoming winter. This is the time of year when most of us use our wood burning stoves and fireplaces.
Smoke alarms most often fail because of missing, dead or disconnected batteries, so maintenance is a simple and effective way to protect your family and reduce home fire deaths.

For best protection, it is recommended that you install alarms utilizing both ionization and photoelectric technology, and ones that have long life 10 year lithium ion batteries.
Visit the United States Fire Administration and National Fire Protection Association for additional information regarding smoke alarm types, installation, maintenance and safety.
