Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors: Our volunteers perform annual inspections of local homes, cottages and businesses in an effort to ensure that every home is protected with working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.  Install CO alarms on every level of the home, near sleeping areas and according to manufacturers instructions.   Don’t place them near windows or vents, bathrooms or heating or fuel burning appliances.   Test once a month by pushing the ‘test’ button and replace batteries annually and units as required (typically 7 to 10 years).
