2MCCTV carries the most up-to-date fire alarm systems to help protect your loved ones, home or business. 2MCCTV carries both wireless and wired systems to make it easier to accommodate any situation. Smoke and Carbon Monoxide detectors can help avoid a tragedy, always keep them up to date and in working condition. Whether you have an old or new system always be sure to:

  • Always warn family members when you are conducting a test or a fire drill, to not scare them and so they know what the sound is in case of a dangerous situation
  • Have someone help you, ask them to stand at the furthest possible point ot the home or business to make sure the detector is loud enough. They can also try standing outside to see if its possible to hear they alarm.
  • Test the power, always push the test button, the alarm should sound, if not it is not receiving power
  • If your smoke detector/ carbon monoxide detector is hardwired and is monitored by a company be sure to notify them and the fire department it is only a test
  • If you conduct a fire drill make sure to have a designated meeting place to account for everyone
  • Check the smoke sensor. There are inexpensive aerosol sprays you can purchase that are specifically made to test smoke detectors, make sure to follow the directions. If the alarm does not should this means you detector may be worn out
  • You can also use smoke, light 2 or 3 matches and hold them a few feet under the detector. Make sure to keep the matches a few feet away so as to not melt or damage the detector
  • Be sure to test your detectors at least once a month
  • Replace your detectors if they are 10 years or older
  • When you test your detector it a good idea to use a vacuum or soft cloth and clean any dust or buildup
  • Change the batteries twice a year. Getting in the habit of changing your batteries when you change the clocks for daylight savings time might be a helpful way to remember
