Fire Marshal's Office
NFPA Fire Safety Survey
Monroe County Fire Rescue’s Fire Marshal’s Office is urging residents to look at the in-home fire safety checklist to increase fire safety awareness within the home. In partnership with the National Fire Protection Agency, Chief Fire Marshal RL Colina says, “Preparing your home for the worst can save lives.”
At the minimum, a house should have working smoke alarms on every level and in every room. Also, don’t forget to change the batteries every six months and replace the smoke alarm every 10 years. Having a working smoke alarm substantially increases your chance of survival in a home fire. For added protection, home fire sprinklers can reduce the heat, flames, and smoke produced in a fire allowing people more time to escape.
For other fire safety precautions that can make your home safer, complete the Home Fire Safety Survey Checklist by visiting www.monroecounty-fl.gov/firemarshal. You can hit submit at the end of the form and it automatically submits, or you can save it to your desktop and email the completed checklist to Moellerfirstname.lastname@example.org. The information provided will also provide information for future community outreach events and might save your or someone else’s life. Fire Safety Survey Link
