This is Fire Prevention Week.  Easton Volunteer Fire Department says the theme is “learn the sounds of fire safety.”  From beeps to the chirps, this year’s campaign works to better educate the public about the sounds smoke alarms make, what those sounds mean, and how to respond to them.   According to the latest National Fire Prevention Association “Smoke Alarms in the U.S.” report, working smoke alarms in the home reduce the risk of dying in a reported fire by more than half.  The campaign also addresses special considerations for the deaf and hard of hearing, along with information about carbon monoxide alarms. The difference between the sound of a smoke alarm and a carbon monoxide alarm is three beeps for smoke, four for CO.
