When was the last time you checked the smoke detectors in your home? Do they work?
The Postal Bulletin’s latest edition highlights these issues during Fire Prevention Week, which is Oct. 9-15.
The cover story outlines the importance of checking smoke detectors periodically. The article notes that approximately 60 percent of home fire deaths result from fires in which smoke alarms were not present or didn’t work.
The article recommends checking the manufacture date on the back the smoke detector.
The Sept. 29 Postal Bulletin also previews the upcoming Hanukkah and Nativity stamps.
