It's Time To FALL BACK again & Check Your Fire & CO Alarms in 10583

By
Home Builder with Servpro of Scarsdale / Mount Vernon Fire/Water Certified
Here's your annual reminder to FALL BACK this Saturday night by one hour on all clocks and watches...our Cell Phones should get the message from our carriers.  
 
 
 
**Check Fire Alarms & CO detectors, plus Radon, too, at this time of year.
 
 
Fall Back an hour on your timepieces this Saturday Night so when you awake Sunday morning - less you give up an hour of snooze time.
 
Then on Sunday, take a few minutes to change the batteries in all smoke & carbon monoxide detectors.
 
More than 3,400 Americans die each year in fires and approximately 17,500 are injured. An overwhelming number of fires occur in the home and even offices at your buinesses are at risk. There are time-tested ways to prevent and survive a fire. Go to the fire link at FEMA.org, too, for more tips.

All people and animals are at risk for CO poisoning. Certain groups - unborn babies, infants, and people with chronic heart disease, anemia, or respiratory problems - are more susceptible to its effects. Each year, more than 400 Americans die from unintentional CO poisoning, more than 20,000 visit the emergency room and more than 4,000 are hospitalized due to CO poisoning.
 
Fatalities are highest among Americans 65 and older. Look at the site for the Center for Disease Control -- search Google for the CDC and CO poisening.  They can give you more info.
 
 
Prevention tips to install a detector (The National Fire Alarm Code®, NFPA 72)

  • Install a smoke/CO2 alarm on every floor of your home, even the basement.
  • Alarms should be installed in a central location outside each separate sleeping area, on every level of the home, and in other locations where required by applicable laws, codes or standards.
  • For the best protection, have alarms that are interconnected throughout the home. When one sounds, they all sound. (Contact a licensed/insured electrician or alarm specialist)
  • Replace alarms after 10 years (the filter sensors wear out).
  • Smoke detection devices should not be installed in corners or where the wall and ceiling meet. Research shows there is a potential dead air space here where smoke and other combustion products may not be able to reach the detection chamber.
  • Smoke detectors should not be installed on a wall within four inches of the ceiling or on the ceiling within four inches of the wall.
  • REMEMBER, if you install it improperly it may not work and that is just as bad as not having one.

 

Be safe and please feel free to share this at work, with your family and colleagues!

Hi Hillary - a very good idea to remind people about this when the clocks change.  Can't believe it is that time already.

A belated thanks, Grant.  Was out of town campaigning.  Sorry to miss you, plus new phone.  We're in Putnam now and had to get a Verizon phone, service to get calls and emails.  Thanks my friend!

Hi Hillary - those smoke and CO alarms don't last forever - even the hard wired ones.
