Fire Safety

It has been recommended by the Anchorage Fire Department, that each unit have a UL listed / FM approved fire extinguisher(s) with a minimum rating of 2A:10B:C. It must be easily visible & accessible for use in the event of a fire.  All fire extinguishers must be serviced & tagged annually by a qualified servicing contractor. It is also recommended that each homeowner purchase and install a fire extinguisher in their unit. Install at least one smoke alarm in every floor including the basement and attic and inside each sleeping area. Ensure that all members of your family can hear the smoke alarm. If someone is hearing impaired, install alarms that flash a strobe light as well as sound an alarm. In addition, at least one carbon monoxide detector or alarm shall be installed on each floor level. If a floor level contains bedrooms or sleeping rooms, at least one detector shall be located in the immediate vicinity of the sleeping area, outside of the bedrooms or sleeping rooms. Carbon monoxide detectors and alarms shall be installed in accordance with their listing. The alarm shall be clearly audible in all sleeping rooms, even if the intervening doors are closed.  It is also recommended that your smoke / carbon monoxide detectors be checked every 30 days.  Please remember to check / change the batteries in both of these.
