FAQ

What kind of fire extinguisher should I purchase for my home and where should it be located?
Residential fire extinguishers should be of the multi-purpose variety labeled "ABC" and capable of being used on all types of fires.  It should be large enough to extinguish a small fire but not so heavy that it cannot be easily handled.  Install the fire extinguisher close to an exit.  
It is recommended that you use a fire extinguisher only when a fire is confined to a small area and everyone is out of the dwelling.
Should I have a carbon monoxide detector in my home?
Carbon monoxide is an invisible, odorless, and colorless gas that can poison humans and animals over short and extended periods of time.  It is recommended that all dwellings be equipped with a carbon monoxide alarm located outside of the sleeping area and on every floor level.
How often should I replace my smoke detectors?
It is recommended that smoke detectors be replaced every ten years.  Batteries should be replaced every six months.
