The Dysart et al Fire Department is concerned with smoke alarm compliance in residences.

Fire Chief Mike Isles says the department inspected the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in approximately 100 homes.

Isles also says he found 30 per cent of inspected homes had an outdated smoke alarm, or none at all.

Isles also mentions smoke and carbon monoxide alarms need to be replaced 10 years after the manufacturing date.

He adds don’t wait until a tragedy happens to take action.

Smoke alarms retail for anywhere between $15 and $60.
