October 9th through 15th is Fire Prevention Week!  This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign is “Don’t Wait – Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years.”

Recent NFPA survey data shows that the public has many misconceptions about smoke alarms, which may put them at increased risk in the event of a home fire. For example, only a small percentage of people know how old their smoke alarms are, or how often they need to be replaced.  See the video below for helpful tips on smoke alarm maintenance:
