Warren County Fire and Rescue Service Participates in Fire Prevention Week Virtual Campaign | Nvdaily



The Warren County Department of Fire and Rescue Services is partnering with the National Fire Protection Association for this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, which runs Sunday through Saturday.

This year’s campaign is aimed at providing safety education and is titled “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety,” a press release read.

“It is important to learn the different sounds of fire safety to include smoke and carbon monoxide alarms,” Fire Chief James Bonzano said in the statement. “The goal of this campaign is to make sure everyone in the house understands the sounds of these alarms and knows how to react. “”

The department will post a series of videos and educational activities throughout the week to provide education “while protecting our community (safe) from the effects of COVID “Bonzano said in the statement. The videos can be viewed online at warrencountyfire.com or the department’s Facebook page, called “Warren County Fire and Rescue”.

The release contains five safety tips for “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety:”

* A continuous set of three loud beeps means smoke or fire. Get out, dial 9-1-1 and stay outside.

* A single beep every 30 or 60 seconds means the battery is low and needs to be changed. • All smoke detectors should be replaced after 10 years.

* A continuous beep after battery replacement means the alarm is at the end of its life and the unit needs to be replaced.

* Make sure your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms meet the needs of all members of your family, including those with sensory or physical disabilities.

People may be eligible to receive a free smoke detector installation if their home is not currently equipped with the sound of a smoke detector, the release said.
