Notes from a Rookie Firefighter...May 18, 2011

 

This is a lame question no doubt.

 

How can you tell by looking at an alarm panel that a smoke detector head needs to be cleaned out?

 

I told you it was lame.

Most smoke detectors don't have diagnostic capabilites linked to the alarm panel. Depending on the type of sensor the detector uses, it may trip for no apparent reason. Have the head cleaned. Anytime any renovations are done, if the heads cannot be removed, have them cleaned after. If it looks dirty, it probably is.
