Is your smoke or CO alarm celebrating its 10th year in your home? It's time to replace it!
Check the back of your alarms for the manufacture date. Many alarms expire after 10 years, but some may expire before that so check with the manufacturer if you aren't sure when the alarm expires. Replace any alarms that have expired.
Once you've checked the date, test the alarm. All alarms in your home should be tested monthly by pressing the test button.
For more information on smoke alarms visit the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs' Smoke Alarms webpage.
Carbon monoxide (CO) alarms
Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odourless, tasteless and toxic gas. CO is often referred to as a "silent killer" since it cannot be detected without an alarm. CO alarms are required outside all sleeping areas if you have a fuel burning appliance in your home or an attached garage.
For more information on carbon monoxide visit the TSSA's CO Safety website.
