This is the message we will be spreading to the elementary students Wednesday October 7th. We hope that they bring this message home and together you can make sure there is a working smoke detector in every bedroom. There should also be one in the hallway outside of every sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement.  For more information please visit NFPA Fire prevention week.
