During the last week of National Fire Prevention Month, the Spokane Fire Department (SFD) would like to remind residents of the importance of having working smoke detectors in their home and the importance of maintaining those detectors to ensure they are in good working order.
In a fire, working smoke alarms in a home can mean the difference between life and death. “Smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained provide an early warning signal which could allow everyone in the home to safely escape,” advises SFD Fire Marshal Mike Miller. “With October being National Fire Prevention Month it is the perfect time to check on the age and condition of your smoke alarms.”
Residents wanting more information on smoke alarms or fire safety can contact the SFD’s Fire Prevention Bureau at 509.625.7058. A variety of community education resources are also available to help meet the needs of both children and adults. Fire safety presentations can be arranged for neighborhood, business, civic, or education groups.
