How to report health hazards in a sober living house
The first step to learning how to report health hazards in a sober living house is to understand what constitutes such a situation. It is not simply a matter of being spanked or burned. An alarm in a hotel will not sound if you are just lying on your bed and relaxing. Likewise, in a boarding house, it is not acceptable to walk through the hallways with your hands in your pockets, only to find that a smoke alarm went off. Most importantly, it is acceptable to open the door without knocking, or to not have the key in the lock. Many boarding houses require that guests not eat, drink, or use the bathroom before exiting their rooms at night. Those who believe they have been served food or drinks without paying will immediately feel the threat of eviction. If an alarm system does not have a system that falls into the “it is okay to be alert” category, it falls into the “expect to be spanked” category. The “It is okay to be alert” category, for those unfamiliar with the concept, would include having a cell phone or other device to call for help, a GPS tracker, emergency lights and even a smoke detector. In a healthy living home, there is no requirement to warn guests of a fire until after the blaze has been extinguished. The alarm system is not designed to send you to the hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation and fire burns. Smoke Detectors do not even have to be located in the bedrooms. Smoke Detectors can be located in a hallway or any area of the home that the smoker is likely to enter. Smokers are often disarmed by smoke and confused by the different colors and shapes ofsmoke alarms. Smoke Detectors are small pieces of equipment that are placed throughout the room to alert the smoker that he/she is in danger. The actual smoke detectors can be located in the smoke detectors and in the top of the smoke detector (where there is a circuit). Smoke Detectors do not only detect smoke, but they also detect the odor of smoke and fire. These are both indications that something is wrong. When a smoke detector fails to activate, all smoke detectors should be tripped and the fire alarm sounded. If no smoke detector activates, the smoke detector should be replaced and the fire alarm sound. Do not wait until someone screams or cries for help. A smoke detector is not going to stop the smoke. Smoke alarms are located in every room and can be heard from within the room. They can go off before the smoke detector goes off, so be sure to check your smoke detectors. As the law states, you should not smoke in a house where health hazards exist. It is your responsibility to report health hazards and to protect yourself and your family from the danger.
