Volunteers are needed to install smoke alarms during a March 24 event on the Island

The organization representing New York's volunteer fire fighters is reminding residents to check their smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms to ensure they're in working order. Officials say there should be a smoke alarm in every level of your home, including inside and outside bedrooms.

With Daylight Saving Time, the Red Cross and local fire departments recommend checking your smoke detectors.

Then practice the plan at least two times a year. Most victims of fires die from smoke or toxic gases and not from burns.

"Help us Sound the Alarm against home fire injuries and deaths by volunteering or donating to support our work", said Gail McGovern, president and CEO of the American Red Cross. There are around 1,000 fires on the Island of Montreal every year, and about 10 of them are fatal. Any alarms with a manufacture date of March 11, 2008, or earlier should be replaced.

OR law requires ionization-only smoke alarms that are exclusively battery powered to come equipped with a hush feature and a 10-year battery.
