State Farm promotes fire safety in Cambridge


State Farm officers Allen Hunter and Zack Baker recently donated fire prevention kits to help local firefighters educate the community on the sounds of fire safety.

State Farm firefighters and officers seek to educate everyone on the simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.

A total of 165 State Farm officers statewide delivered prevention kits to local services.

The following safety tips will help you learn the sounds of fire safety:

  • A continuous set of three loud beeps – beep, beep, beep – means smoke or fire. Get out, dial 9-1-1 and stay outside.
  • A single beep every 30 or 60 seconds means the battery is low and needs to be changed.
  • All smoke detectors should be replaced after 10 years. The continuous beep after the battery is replaced means that the alarm is at the end of its life and the unit must be replaced.
  • Make sure your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms meet the needs of all members of your family, including those with sensory or physical disabilities.
