It is Fire Prevention Week.
and the La Crosse Fire Department wants you to keep
some things in mind.
the fire department is focusing on smoke detectors.
?did you know smoke detectors have an expiration date?
Officials say you should regularly replace the detector
itself about every ten years.
What's nice now is they make lithium-ion, sealed units
that are designed to last for ten years.
So you never have to replace batteries, you just replace
the detector, and when it starts chirping it's hit
the end of its functional life and you just replace
them, and the nice thing is you don't have to change
And with the temperatures falling.
officials say you should be checking any heating devices
like chimneys and space heaters for damage.
