Effective February 1, 2011, ALL one and two family buildings including owner occupied buildings will be required to have CO detectors in accordance with Wisconsin's new Carbon Monoxide Detector Law.

Three families and larger buildings in Wisconsin that have attached garages or “fuel burning devices” –gas heat, oil heat, gas dryers, gas stoves etc. had a similar law become effective last April.  

CO detectors must be within 75 feet of all fuel burning device and within 15′ of each bedroom. One is required in the basement if there is a “fuel burning device” down there. They are also required in common hallways spaced no more than 75′.

Battery and plug in units are okay. Mount them on the ceiling or wall.

Take the time this week to make sure your family has a working smoke alarm at home, a safety plan in place and an emergency kit at the ready. View Rocket's fire safety video for more information

The Hero In You Foundation team extends our deepest sympathy and sends our thoughts to the victims of the California wildfires. Thank you to the hundreds of firefighters who have taken part and continue to work on the front lines to protect and save lives and property.

Rocket Visits Milwaukee Fire Department

On Monday, the Milwaukee Fire Department hosted a Fire Prevention Week Kick-Off event where Rocket taught fire safety to the students of Hartford University School, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, fire cadets and guests. We are happy to be a resource for emergency preparedness to local communities across the country! 

In discussing fire safety and prevention at home, Milwaukee Fire Department's Fire Chief Mark Rohlfing encourages families to "visit a local fire station, then have a family discussion about smoke alarms, fire exit drills and fire safety. Be sure to get the kids involved and make it a fun learning experience for all."
