Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are provided in each unit.  Please do not alter any carbon monoxide and/or smoke detector provided in the unit. If the smoke detector beeps once every minute, it is indicating a low battery.  Residents have the responsibility to test and provide general maintenance to said detectors within the unit, including the responsibility to replace the batteries, and to notify the Maintenance Department of any deficiencies which the resident cannot correct.  If the smoke detector sounds a constant, loud alarm, it has detected smoke and you should check the apartment and call 911 if there is an emergency.  If your building has an elevator and the elevator service is interrupted during a fire, you should go to the nearest stairwell landing.  The Fire Department is trained to check stairwells first when responding to a fire.
