Fully working fire extinguishers and fire alarms are installed in each classroom and are tagged and serviced annually. Fully working carbon monoxide detectors are installed in each classroom and are tagged and serviced annually. Smoke detectors, fire alarms and carbon monoxide detectors are tested monthly, and a written log of testing dates and battery changes is maintained and available.
Our center has hard-wired smoke detectors connected to an internal fire alarm. The alarm system was last tested October 23, 2009 during a campus-wide testing of fire alarms. A fully working fire extinguisher is located in each of the classrooms, and the most recent tag indicates they were serviced 05/09.
Lindgren Child Care Center uses no fuel-burning sources of power, therefore carbon monoxide detectors are not necessary. The water heater in the laundry area is electric, and all heat and cooling comes from the central heating and cooling plant located on campus.
