[ARCHIVED] Fire Prevention Week focuses on changing smoke detector batteries

The Midland Fire Department reminds citizens of the importance of replacing their smoke detectors during this year's Fire Prevention Week this week.

This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Don’t Wait – Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years,” represents the final year of the National Fire Prevention Association's three-year effort to educate the public about smoke alarm safety.

Midland firefighters will be present at Midland Park Mall on October 13-15 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. to hand out educational and promotional items to children and answer questions from families about fire safety.

NFPA’s survey data shows that only a small percentage of people know how old their smoke alarms are, or how often they need to be replaced. The association offers the following tips:

- Smoke alarms should be replaced every 10 years.
- Make sure you know how old all the smoke alarms are in your home.- To find out how old a smoke alarm is, look at the date of manufacture on the back of the alarm; the alarm should be replaced 10 years from that date.
