Hunting camps require smoke alarms too, says Fire Department

Just because it’s not your house doesn’t mean it shouldn’t have one.
The Madawaska Valley Fire Department says trailers and hunting camps are no different than a cottage or house and they need smoke alarms. Firefighters also urge people to have two ways out of the building in case of an emergency.
For those with propane, oil or wood furnaces, a working CO2 alarm is also required. For wood burners, the Fire Department suggests cleaning your stove before lighting it, as birds or rodents can build nests in the piping.
