An Upper Peninsula fire department is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association to help keep residents safe.
The Marquette City Fire Department is sharing a few tips through it’s “Learn The Sounds of Fire Safety” campaign.
The fire department is hosting an event Saturday, October 2nd at 11 am which includes a firetruck display and a parade at 12:30 to kickstart the campaign.
• A continuous set of three beeps means smoke or fire
• A single chirp every 30 or 60 seconds means the battery is low and must be changed
• All smoke alarms must be replaced after 10 years
• Chirping that continues after the battery has been replaced means the alarm is at the end of its life and must be replaced
