To schedule a FREE fire prevention demonstration or to schedule the Kid’s Fire Safety House for your school or community event please contact the Fire Marshal at 610-270-2894.


Carbon Monoxide Detectors


Carbon monoxide (CO) is an invisible, odorless, colorless gas created when fossil fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, propane, oil and methane) burn incompletely. In the home, heating and cooking equipment are possible sources of carbon monoxide. Vehicles running in an attached garage could also produce dangerous levels of carbon monoxide. Because one cannot smell, see, or taste it, carbon monoxide can kill you before you know it is there.

Where do I place my carbon monoxide detector?

Place a carbon monoxide detector near the sleeping area. A second detector should be located near the heating appliance. At least one CO detector should be battery powered.

What do I do when my CO detector goes into alarm?

Get out and call 911. Do not waste time opening windows, this could be deadly. It also allows firefighters to respond with sensitive equipment to trace the source.

What are the symptoms of CO poisoning?

CO poisoning symptoms can mimic the flu. Headaches or feeling better when you leave your home are also possible symptoms


Car Seat Checks

The Montgomery County Health Department has certified car seat technicians who inspect child safety seats. Participants are educated on the proper way to install a car seat in their car, and to ensure their child is properly restrained in the car seat. Car seat checks are by appointment only. This service is free of charge and open to all residents of Montgomery County.

To schedule an appointment, call 610-278-5119, leave a message on the voice mail or e-mail and you will be contacted to arrange an appointment time. Please include your name, phone number and the number of seats to be checked.
The Norristown install location is at the Montgomery Hose Fire Company, 201 West Freedley Street, Norristown.
