The week of October 3 – 9 is Fire Prevention Week, so the Weston Volunteer Fire Department is promoting “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety,” this year’s public awareness campaign by the National Fire Protection Association.
“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,” said Fire Chief John Pokorny.
“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.”
