Your Security Is Our #1 Priority


Smoke Detectors

Half of the home fires and three-fifths of fire deaths occur in homes without smoke detectors. Hundreds of people die each year in homes with smoke detectors that don't work. It's important that you not only have a smoke detector, but that you check and maintain it frequently. 

You Need To Know What Kind Of Smoke Detector You Have & How to Maintain It

Battery - Powered

Battery-Powered smoke detectors operate on alkaline batteries. The battery should be checked weekly and replaced twice a year. A good time to do this is when you change your clock in the fall and spring.

Hard - Wired without Battery Back-up

This type of smoke detector operates on household current. As long as you have electricity, it will function, but if your house loses power, it will no longer function. If you have this type, you should install battery-operated models for back-up.

Hard - Wired with Battery Back-up

There are hardwired models that have battery back-up so the detector will still function in case of power failure. If you have this type, the battery should be changed twice a year or when needed.

Smoke Detector Replacement

It is recommended that detectors be replaced every 10 years. At 15 years there is a 50/50 chance your detector will fail, almost 100% chance of failure at 30 years.

General Safety Tips

How Many Of These Do you Do?

Going Out of Town - Give the Impression Someone is Home

Note: Although the above are deterring and preventive measures that you can do, an alarm system would alert others by the siren sounding and if monitored, notify the central station who in turn can notify the proper authority. Statistics show a home is more than 60 percent LESS likely to be burglarized than a home without an alarm system.
