Smoke Detector Program
"Do you have working smoke detectors in your home?"
Properly-installed and maintained smoke detectors provide early warning of
a fire. When there is a fire in your home, you are twice as likely to survive
when you have working smoke detectors.

For minimum protection, install smoke detectors on each level of your home
including the basement. For extra protection, you should install detectors
both inside and outside of sleeping areas.

Tests smoke alarms monthly, whether your detectors are battery operated,
or "hard wired".

Replace batteries in your smoke detectors twice per year when you change
your clocks in the Spring and Fall.

Replace your smoke detectors every ten years. It may be helpful to write the
purchase date on the inside of the unit with a marker.

Keep your smoke detectors clean. Dust and debris can interfere with their
operation, so vacuum, over and around your smoke alarm regularly.

If you live in the Oaks Corners Fire Protection district, and you do not have
working smoke detectors on each level of your home, we will send a
firefighter to your home and install smoke detectors free of charge.
