Cheryl Cranston of West Seneca, NY asks:

Can we assume the N40 has both heat and smoke alarms in the engine room...and perhaps in the galley?

Dan Streech responds:

We don't have conventional smoke or heat alarms in either the engine room or the galley. In the engine room, we have a digital thermometer which we monitor each hour when we do our engine room checks. Also in the engine room, we have a "Fireboy" fire extinguisher containing pressurized FE-241 gas. It will discharge automatically in case of a fire or it can be discharged manually by pulling a handle located outside of the engine room. If it should discharge, an alarm will sound in the pilot house.
