Baltimore County firefighters remind residents to check the batteries in their smoke and carbon monoxide alarms when Daylight Saving Time returns this Sunday, March 8.

Firefighters across the nation suggest that residents check alarm batteries twice a year – in the spring and fall, at the same time we reset our clocks. This year, we "spring forward" to Daylight Saving Time at 2 a.m., Sunday, March 8.

Smoke alarms are the single most important means of preventing house and apartment fire death. They provide an early warning signal if there is a fire so you can escape. Most hardware and home supply stores carry them.

Deadly Odorless Gas

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a deadly odorless, invisible gas produced by fuel-burning appliances. High levels of CO can kill within hours. CO detectors sound an alarm when levels of the gas rise so you can get out of the house, call 911 and discover the source of the problem – before someone becomes ill. Every home should be equipped with CO detectors.

For detailed information, see the Baltimore County Fire Department's fact sheets on their web site under Fire and Life Safety.

An "After the Fire Walk" will be conducted at 6:30 p.m. today at 4 Tricount Court in Owings Mills. This was the site of a two-alarm apartment fire that occurred on Tuesday morning, leaving one person deceased, one transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Burn Center in critical condition and two additional people injured.

Firefighters from the Garrison and Franklin career stations and the Owings Mills and Reisterstown volunteer companies will meet with residents of the apartment complex to reinforce fire safety issues, discuss the circumstances of the fire and provide fire safety materials.

Division Chief Michael Robinson will be available to answer questions about this fire and fire safety.

On December 3, the Fire Department’s annual Fire Prevention Week Poster Contest ceremony was held at Loch Raven High School. The ceremony recognized public and private school third-graders who designed posters that focused on home fire detection and illustrated the theme, “Smoke Alarms Save Lives – Test Yours Every Month.”

The winners:

  • First place: Christina Schaeffer from Catonsville Elementary won $100, plus other prizes
  • Second place: Avery DeBorde from Jacksonville Elementary won $50
  • Third place: Hannah Harris from Sparks Elementary won $50
  • Fourth place: Rebecca Liao from Jacksonville Elementary won $35
  • Fifth place: Mia Cucuzzella from Cromwell Valley Elementary won $35
  • Honorable Mention: 37 winners received $25 each

The awards were presented by Fire Chief John Hohman; Baltimore County Public Schools Superintendent S. Dallas Dance; Michael Day Sr., President of the Baltimore County Professional Fire Fighters Association, Local 1311; and Rick Eyre, Baltimore County Volunteer Firemen’s Association.

The Baltimore County Professional Fire Fighters Association, Local 1311 and the Baltimore County Volunteer Firemen’s Association provided the monetary awards.

Participants in this year’s poster contest included 60 third grade students from 20 schools.
