Smoke alarms save lives, but only if they work properly. Having a working smoke alarm can increase your chance of surviving a house fire and allow advanced notice to evacuate in the event of an emergency. There should be a smoke alarm in every bedroom, hallway, and living area depending on the size and/or layout of the home. If it is a battery-operated smoke alarm, then the battery should be changed every 6 months. We suggest doing this during daylight savings time change. "Change your Clocks. Change your Batteries!" Smoke alarms should be test monthly by pressing the test button.
The City of Fayetteville Fire Department is able to provide smoke alarms for families in need through the partnership of Home Depot and Lowes and their continued commitment to helping and supporting the community. The smoke alarms are available by request and while supplies are procurable. You must own your own home. If you can install them yourself, you may come by our Administration Office located at 95 Johnson Avenue and receive the smoke alarm. If you need assistance, a fire crew may be able to come to your home and assist with the installation.

A working smoke alarm will clue you in that there is a fire and you need to escape. Fire moves fast. You and your family could have only minutes to get out safely once the smoke alarm sounds.
