Lakeville Fire Battled Car, Grass Fires Last Week

Daylight savings time is a good time to replace smoke alarm and carbon monoxide batteries.

FIRE REPORT

From Oct. 22 to Oct. 29, the Lakeville Fire Department responded to 20 calls for service including 1 passenger vehicle fire, 1 brush-and-grass mixture fire, 1 electrical wiring problem, 1 unauthorized burn, 3 motor vehicle accidents (2 with injuries), 3 gas leaks and 10 false alarms. 

FIRE TIP

Daylight savings time is a good time to replace smoke alarm and carbon monoxide batteries. To keep your family safe from fire, remember and make use of the following tips: 

  • Every month, test your smoke alarms by pushing the “test” button. Follow testing instructions in your owner’s manual. 
  • Once a month, carefully vacuum the inside of a battery powered unit using a soft bristle brush. If your alarms are electrically connected, turn off the power and vacuum the outside vents only. Test your alarms after cleaning them. 
  • Smoke alarms don’t last forever. Those more than 10 years old should be replaced. 

On Nov. 4, change your clock … change your batteries, it could save a life!
