Fire Prevention Week: “Learn the Sound of Fire Safety”

The Marquette City Fire Department is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Associations (NFPA)-the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week for more than 90 years-to promote this year’s Fire Prevention Week™ campaign, “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety™·” This year’s campaign, October 3- 9, works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.

“What do the sounds mean? Is there a beep or a chirp coming out of your smoke or carbon monoxide alarm? Knowing the difference can save you, your home, and your family,” said Lorraine Carli, vice-president of outreach and advocacy at NFPA.

The Marquette City Fire Department encourages all residents to embrace the 2021 Fire Prevention Week theme.

“It’s important to learn the different sounds of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. When an alarm makes noise-a beeping sound or a chirping sound-you must take action.” said Battalion Chief Haile. “Make sure everyone in the home understands the sounds of the alarms and knows how to respond. To learn the sounds  of your specific smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, check the manufacturer’s instructions that came in the box, or search the brand and model online.”

Marquette City Fire Department wants to share safety tips to help you “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety”

  • A continuous set of three loud beeps-beep, beep, beep-means smoke or fire. Get out, call 9-1-1, and stay out.
  • A single chirp every 30 or 60 seconds means the battery is low and must be changed.
  • All smoke alarms must be replaced after 10 years.
  • Chirping that continues after the battery has been replaced means the alarm is at the end of its life and  the unit must be replaced.
  • Make sure your smoke and CO alarms meet the needs of all your family members, including those with      sensory or physical disabilities.

The Marquette City Fire Department is hosting a series of  events in support of this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety”, including Firetruck Static Display on Saturday, October 2, 2021 at 11 a.m. (with a rain date of Oct. 9) with a parade at 12:30 p.m. Due to the ongoing pandemic, please be mindful of your surroundings and use social distancing.
