Fire Safety Information

 The Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends residents check their Carbon Monoxide (CO) detectors to determine if the alarm was manufactured before October 1, 1998.  Alarms made before that time were subject to nuisance alarming.  The new standards reduce the possibility of nuisance alarming.  The new standard is Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) 2034, Second Edition, June 2002; this information will be found on the back of the unit.  CO alarms do have a limited life.

            Never ignore a sounding CO alarm!
