Do You Have Working Smoke Detectors [AUDIO]

Last week was National Fire Prevention Week, and Daylight Savings Time change is around.  State fire officials are urging Missourians to make sure they have working smoke detectors.  National Fire Prevention Week came as Missourians experienced a few cool nights and many have in recent weeks turned on the heat for the first time this season.

Interim State Fire Marshal Greg Carrell says one of the themes of the week is to urge the use of smoke alarms in and close to sleeping areas…

“…down there.”

Carrell adds other monitors could be needed too, depending on your heating source…


A University of Missouri expert also recommends replacing smoke alarms that are more than 10 years old.
