Severe Weather
Citizens should be prepared for potentially damaging weather in Mooresville that can strike at any time. Tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, lightning strikes, snow, and ice storms have caused power outages, property damage, environmental destruction, and interruptions in food and water supplies.

The best time to assemble a three-day emergency supply kit is well before you will ever need it. Most people already have these items around the house and it is a matter of assembling them now before an evacuation order is issued. Stocking up now on emergency supplies can add to your family's safety and comfort during and after a disaster. Preparation includes having adequate insurance and being prepared to make a claim in the event of storm damage. This site includes a section on insurance tips.

Smoke Detector Information
A properly installed and maintained smoke alarm is the only thing in your home that can alert you and your family to a fire 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whether you are awake or asleep, a working smoke alarm is constantly on alert, scanning the air for fire and smoke.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in properties without working smoke alarms. A working smoke alarm significantly increases your chances of surviving a deadly home fire.

Smoke Detector Maintenance
  • Always follow the manufactures guidelines, or as a general rule:
  • Test detectors monthly, replace batteries twice a year (unless powered by a 10-year lithium battery), and replace the detector per the manufacture's recommendations or a maximum of 10 years.
  • The Mooresville Fire-Rescue does offer a smoke detector program where firefighters will come to your home and check detectors and may provide detectors if needed. For more information contact 704-664-1338.
Smoke Detector Links: Carbon Monoxide Information
  • If your carbon monoxide detector alarms…do not hesitate, go outside and call 911.
  • Carbon Monoxide (CO) is the number one cause of poisoning deaths in the United States, killing more than 3,800 individuals annually.
  • CO is a colorless, odorless gas. Because you cannot see, taste or smell it, CO can kill you before you know it is there. Symptoms of CO poisoning include flu-like symptoms such as headaches, nausea, fatigue, dizziness, confusion, and breathing difficulties.
  • CO is a byproduct of incomplete combustion of fossil fuels such as natural gas, oil, wood, or coal. Common causes of carbon monoxide poisoning include; malfunctioning appliances, furnaces, stoves, ovens, water heaters, charcoal grills, and motor vehicles.
How to Protect Yourself
You should have a UL approved battery operated carbon monoxide alarm on each level of your home. Batteries should be checked monthly and batteries replaced when you change your clocks.

To protect your family have a qualified professional check all fuel burning appliances, furnaces, venting and chimney systems at least once a year or as recommended by the manufacturer.
