Smoke Detectors

Smoke alarms saves lives, but only if they are installed and working. Check out this video.

Install:

The Anna Fire Department recommends that you install at least one smoke alarm on every level of your home. Smoke alarms are designed to wake you up if a fire starts while you are sleeping. Be sure your smoke alarms are near bedrooms and other sleeping areas in your home.

Test:

Battery operated smoke alarms should be tested once a month to make sure they are working. When was the last time you tested your smoke alarm?

Change:

Replace the batteries in your smoke alarm once a year. The Anna Fire Department recommends you do this when you change your clocks to daylight savings time each fall.
