UNDATED – Last week was National Fire Prevention Week, an annual event to help raise awareness about how to prevent fires and fire-related injuries. This year’s theme was “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety!” It aims to educate everyone about the different sounds of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and how to respond when those alarms go off. Three loud beeps from a smoke alarm means smoke or fire. Anyone inside when the alarm sounds should get out and call 9-1-1. A continuous set of four loud beeps from a carbon monoxide alarm means the gas is present in the home and anyone inside should get out and call 9-1-1. A chirping noise from either type of alarm means the battery is low and must be replaced.
