CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTORS

Carbon Monoxide is an odorless, tasteless, colorless gas that is deadly. It is a by-product of a fuel burning process. It can cause symptoms that can mimic a flu and result in unconsciousness and even death. Many appliances around the home are capable of producing Carbon Monoxide when a fault or unusual condition exists. Since the source may be transient in nature,  the source may not always be detectable. Please dial 9-1-1 if your Carbon Monoxide Detector activates.  Your life may depend on it
 

RESIDENTIAL KNOX BOX

A residential "Knox Box" program has  been implemented recently. A Knox Box is a hardened steel case that fits over a resident’s door that can only be accessed by on-duty firefighting and medical personnel. The box generally will contain key(s) to gain entry to the house. This has been proven beneficial for chronically ill or disabled persons, either temporary or permanently disabled. With use of the Knox Box, the fire or medical personnel will not have to use forcible entry techniques to gain entry to the house, which sometimes lead to damage. If you would like more information on this program, please call 847-397-3352.
 

SMOKE DETECTORS

Smoke Detectors save lives; change your battery twice a year. An easy way to remind yourself to do this is to "Change your clock, Change your battery."  A battery change in your smoke detector can be the difference between life and death in a fire. The team will also assist you in the installation of your detector if needed. Please call 847-397-3352 for more information.
