[ARCHIVED] A message from the Asbury Park Fire Department: Learn the Sounds of Safety

APFD Safety Tips

Is there a beep or a chirp coming out of your smoke or carbon monoxide alarm? What does it all mean?Knowing the difference can save you, your home, and your family! Make sure everyone in the home understands the sounds of the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and knows how to respond. Learn the sounds of your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms by checking the user guide or search the brand and model online.

•    A continuous set of three loud beeps—beep, beep, beep—means smoke or fire. Get out, call 9-1-1, and stay out.
•    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 the unit must be replaced.
•    Make sure your smoke and CO alarms meet the needs of all your family members, including those with sensory or physical disabilities.
