may warn sleeping fire victims A smoke detector could save a life in the event of a late night residential fire, ac- cording to the Lethbndge Fire Department More often than not, fatal house fires occur at night, stealing up on sleeping vic- tims and suffocating them before they awaken Smoke detectors, which sniff out the slightest trace of smoke and raise a loud alarm are marketed locally by several firms Though firemen agree the detectors offer valuable protection, not even they use them 100 per cent Although there is a need for smoke detectors in residences, the average person just can't afford them, says Jim McKenna, deputy chief of the Lethbndge fire department Jim McKenna says only about six of the approximately 80 firemen in the department have smoke detectors in their homes Most firemen don't have them because they can't afford them The Herald found four types of smoke detectors on the market in Lethbndge They ranged in price from 95 to Usually one smoke detector is all that's required per house if all the bedrooms are in the same general area, according to Mr McKenna However, if a home has DETECTOR 'DEAFENS' JOHN KOMETZ bedrooms, say in the base- ment and on the second floor, there should be a detector on both floors by the bedrooms Smoke detectors are either battery or electrically operated Some electrically operated detectors are wired into a home's electrical system while others are plugged in Detectors are placed in the general area of a home's bedrooms and high up on a wall or on the ceiling because smoke rises Ed Kurtz, fire prevention officer, says he prefers the battery operated detectors because unlike the electrical detectors they won't fail if there is an electrical failure Most battery operated detectors have a built in warning device to warn owners when the batteries are low One type emits beeps every half hour for two weeks Doug Kometz, another fire prevention officer, says the risk of people forgetting to change their batteries is almost as high as the risk of an electrical failure Mr McKenna says the most important thing, regardless of what type of detector a person installs, is to keep the detec- tor in good working order Most of the smoke detectors sold in Lethbndge have the Underwriters Laboratory of Canada seal of approval which Mr McKenna says automatically wins them the approval of the Lethbndge
