Chapel Hill Fire Department Assists Aging Residents

Post Date:05/16/2017 12:08 PM

The Chapel Hill Fire Department on Monday, May 15, partnered with the Orange County Department on Aging to assist and educate aging residents in the Town of Chapel Hill with smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and fire safety.

Members of the Fire Department’s Operations and Life Safety divisions assisted by showing residents where manufacture dates can be found on the alarms, installing new detectors and providing fire safety tips.

One tip the Fire Department reminds all its residents is to replace the batteries in smoke detectors twice annually following the daylight saving time schedule: “change your clocks; change your batteries.”

The Chapel Hill Fire Department’s priorities are: to provide life safety to its personnel and to the residents and visitors of the Town and UNC-Chapel Hill; and to provide the highest level of service in areas of prevention, emergency response, and disaster management.
