As you turn back your clocks to standard time this weekend, the Flin Flon Fire Department wants you to also think about fire safety. Fire Chief Jim Petrie says start with your smoke detectors. He says smoke detectors in the home are an early warning of a possible fire so that your can get out of bed, go outside, meet at your meeting place and be safe. He says every floor in the home should have a smoke detector, especially outside the bedrooms and they should be checked at least once a year and the batteries changed every year at this time of year.
Petrie also reminds you to create and practice a home escape plan and make sure your chimney is clean.
