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”
