October is Fire Prevention and Safety Month. An important tip is to know the difference between the sounds your household smoke and carbon monoxide alarms make. On the smoke alarms, a continued set of three loud beeps means smoke or fire is present, and that you should call 9-1-1 and stay out of the building. A single chirp every 30 or 60 seconds means the battery is low and has been replaced. Regarding a carbon monoxide set of four loud beeps means that carbon monoxide is present and that you should go outside, call 9-1-1 and stay out. A single chirp every 30 or 60 seconds means that the battery is low and needs to be replaced.
