The officers and members of the WILLOW GROVE VOLUNTEER FIRE COMPANY
wish you and your families a SAFE and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
As the weekend approaches we want to take a second and remind our followers that when you change your clocks this weekend to remember to change all your batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. You should have a smoke alarm on every floor of your home and in every bedroom. Most smoke alarms have a life expectation of 10 years and need to be replaced.
Carbon monoxide alarms should be on every floor of your home also however they only have a life expectation of 5 years. If you are a resident of Upper Moreland Township and are in need of a smoke alarm please let us know @ 215-659-7633 or send us a message here on Facebook and we would be happy to help you out.
Remember, “Hear the beep where you sleep, every bedroom needs a smoke alarm”
