A family hears the smoke alarm Three beeps in a repeating pattern means your alarm has detected smoke and/or fire.

The National Association for Fire Prevention sponsors "Fire Prevention Week" each year, and this year they are focusing on "The Sounds of Fire Safety" You can learn more and access great resources for kids at their website but here are the main points they want us to HEAR:

If you hear a continued set of three loud beeps—beep, beep, beep - from your fire alarm, it means smoke or fire. Get out, call 9-1-1, and stay out.

If you hear a single “chirp” every 30 or 60 seconds, then your battery is low and needs to be changed.  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.

Did you know that all smoke alarms must be replaced after 10 years?

You can find the official flier from the NFPA https://www.nfpa.org/fpw here for your convenience.

We hope you never hear those 3 beeps, but if it does happen - SERVPRO can help. We are the restoration experts in Park Cities and will help you navigate the entire process.
