I had the opportunity a few weeks ago to sit down with Chief Thacker from the Plainfield Fire Territory to discuss fire safety. As the cold weather has arrived news reports of house fires has been on the rise. It is also not uncommon to hear of homes that were not properly protected with working smoke alarms. I encourage you to take a few minutes and watch this video that is loaded with important informations regarding the types of smoke alarms, assistance for getting smoke alarms installed and how quickly smoke can kill someone. Did you know that you should replace smoke alarms every 10 years?
