Today, we changed our clocks as we spring forward. The Brandywine Hundred Fire Co. is encouraging the community to take the time to check and test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure they are in good working order.

Here are some helpful tips:

Test your detectors at least once a month using the test button on the device. Replace detector if it does not properly respond when tested.

Recommend replacing your detector batteries twice a year.

Check the expiration date on the detectors, replace immediately if detector is expired.

If detector "chirps" this is an indication that the battery may need to be replaced, replace the battery immediately. If replacing the battery does not correct the "chirp" replace the detector with a new one.

Follow the manufacturer's specification for installation, testing and maintenance.

Make sure that everyone in the home understands the sound of the detector and knows how to respond.

For additional information regarding smoke detectors please log on to www.nfpa.org or www.statefiremarshal.delaware.gov

WORKING SMOKE DETECTORS SAVE LIVES, so if you don't have them GET THEM TODAY........DON'T WAIT!

If you are in need of smoke detectors please contact the station @ (302) 764-4901.

Please look out for our official announcement as Brandywine Hundred Fire Co. prepares to launch their "NEW" smoke detector campaign. The Officers and Members of BHFC will be coming door to door to check smoke detectors, provide new detectors as needed along with fire safety information. We look forward to seeing you soon.
