Smoke Detectors

If your smoke detector emits a regular beep, this is a sign that the 9V battery needs replacing. It is illegal to permanently disconnect smoke detectors.  The warning buzz can usually be stopped through fanning away the invisible vapor that precedes the smoke.  If necessary, the detector can be turned off at the panel, but make sure to restore it after the smoke has cleared.  If you have a problem with your detector, please call the Property Manager.   

As the smoke detectors in the units are not interconnected with the central alarm system, there will be no automatic response from the Fire Department.  You are advised to call 911 and to notify the Property Management (emergency number at 613-762-5704) in the case of a fire or smoke in your unit.
