JOSE PUJOLS  -  FIRE OFFICIAL

Seventy percent of fire-related deaths occur in homes not equipped with a smoke alarm, or in homes where the smoke alarm was not operable, due to a missing or dead battery.  The Fire code now requires all battery operated smoke detectors to have a 10 year sealed battery.  All old detectors should be replaced immediately. For more information click link below

One of the key messages of fire safety education is that smoke alarms are designed to provide early warning of a fire, allowing sufficient time to reach safety.  Get out and stay out and know 2 ways out.
