Replace Aging CO Alarms  - They don’t last forever

First Responders Need to Know About ‘Beat the Beep’
First responders should know that most CO alarms will be reaching this end of life stage soon and they should take all opportunities to educate residents to Beat the Beep. Fire departments are often called to homes where the CO alarm is beeping. Teaching residents to replace the batteries and to replace entire alarms is critically important for
residential safety.

Signs a CO Alarm Needs Replacing
One sign that a carbon monoxide alarm should be replaced is a chirping sound that does not stop until the unit is powered off. Another sign that a CO alarm should be replaced is that it makes the low battery signal even after brand new batteries are installed. Models with a digital read out will show an ERR or EO9 or END message.

Protect Yourself from Carbon Monoxide, the Invisible, Odorless Killer
The purpose of the Beat the Beep campaign is to alert residents that their CO alarms may be reaching the end of their lifecycles and should be replaced BEFORE the beeps indicating end of life. This also provides continuous protection against possible CO poisoning and reduces the number of false alarms to local fire departments and emergency service providers.

Many Lives Saved by “Nicole’s Law”
Since Nicole’s Law took effect in 2006 requiring CO alarms in nearly every
Massachusetts residence, many people have been saved from CO poisoning. CO alarms notified them that something was wrong at the earliest possible stages of CO detection. There have still been deaths from CO poisoning, but in most cases those homes had no CO alarm.

I can not find any information on the status of the Holliston gun shop theft that happened in January of this year. Has the thief/thieves been caught, have the stolen guns been found? Appreciate any info on this
