(Barrie, ON) – During this year's Fire Prevention Week campaign, themed: “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety™," Barrie Fire & Emergency Service challenges residents to test their smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and learn about the different sounds the alarms make.
“All too often, fires in our city happen in homes where there were no working smoke alarms," said Fire Chief Cory Mainprize. “Knowing what to do when an alarm sounds can help keep you and your family safe. When an alarm makes noise–a beeping sound or a chirping sound–you must take action."
During Fire Prevention Week, residents are encouraged to take simple but important actions to ensure their alarms are in working order, and learn the sounds their smoke and carbon monoxide alarms can make:
