Smoke Detector Program

Firefighters installing a smoke detector

Smoke detectors are essential for every home. The average time to safely exit a home filling with smoke is two minutes. Smoke detectors will help alert you to the danger, providing a valuable early warning for you to get out of your home and call 911.

  • Check smoke detectors to identify if the detectors are in working order.
  • Replace 9-volt batteries in existing, in date, working smoke detectors.
  • Assist residents with the installation of a non-electric, ten-year battery operated detectors, provided by the resident.
  • Educate residents on the proper care of smoke detectors and provide fire safety and fire extinguisher information.
