The Cortland County Health Department reminds residents in the county of the importance of having working smoke detectors and fire extinguishers in their place of residence and are reminding county residents that the Healthy Neighborhoods Program can offer free fire safety materials.
Smoke detectors should be regularly inspected with batteries changed every six months. You should also test the detectors each month, both smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
With the Healthy Neighborhoods Program, residents can schedule an appointment for a free healthy home inspection. Assessment staff will show residents ideas on promoting a healthy home with educational material provided.
Items that can be provided at no cost may include Fire extinguishers, Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms, First Aid Kits, Radon Kits and more.
You can call the Program at 607-428-5410 to participate. More information may also be found HERE.
