Keeping you out of harm's way!
On any day of the year, more than 900 firefighters and lifeguards are on duty to make sure that we are there when you need us. We take great pride in providing exceptional public safety services to you all year round, and we've been doing just that for 88 years.
Thank you sooo much to my guest, spokesperson and firefighter for the LA County Fire Department, Tony Akins for taking the time to call in and give us some fire safety tips for the holidays!
Below is my chat w/Tony...ALL about about fire safety tips EPSPECIALLY during the holidays...kitchen, candle and tree safety reminders ;)
As of July 1, 2011, the Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention Act (Senate Bill- SB 183) requires all single-family homes with an attached garage or a fossil fuel source to install carbon monoxide alarms within the home. Owners of multi-family leased or rental dwellings, such as apartment buildings, are required to comply with the law by January 1, 2013. The Los Angeles County Fire Department has compiled this 'Frequently Asked Questions' (FAQ) list to better inform and prepare residents against deaths related to fires, hazardous materials and toxins. >>>More info here<<<
