Smoke Detectors that do not work can be FRIGHTENING!

October is best known for Halloween and trick or treating. Kids and adults will be dressing up in costumes in hopes to scare people. Did you know that a smoke detector that does not work can be just as scary? Smoke alarms are essential to a fire escape plan. The National Fire Protection Association statistics show, roughly 3 out of 5 deaths happen in homes with no smoke alarm or where the alarm is not working properly.
When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. Working smoke alarms will give you an early warning so you can get outside quickly. Make sure to test yours once a month. Simply press and hold the test button to be sure your alarm is working. We want to make sure you and your family are safe. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the City of Hendersonville Fire Department at 828-697-3024.
