Smoke Alarm Battery Replacement Project
Every year Smoke detectors save lives, but only if they are installed and working. The majority of fatality fires occur in homes without working smoke alarms.
The local Fire Department recommends that you install at least one smoke detector on every level of your home. Be sure your smoke detectors are near bedrooms and other sleeping areas in your home. Battery-operated alarms should be tested once a month to make certain they are working.
Replace the batteries in your smoke alarm at least once a year. Fire officials recommend you do this when you change your clocks to Daylight Savings Time each fall.
The Rotary Club of Davis offers a free smoke alarm battery replacement program to Davis residents each year. The smoke detector batteries are installed by Rotary volunteers at no cost to the residents.
