Smoke Detector Tips


Cooler temperatures are predicted. 

When the heater comes on particles/ rapid temp changes/ or dust can cause a rude awakening.  Here are a few tips from our local Rural Metro Fire Department.

  1. Change your alarm batteries
  2. Test alarms (alarms over 10 yrs old should be replaced)
  3. Clean out alarms with compressed air or a vacuum

**** Always have an escape plan, a meeting place, and family gathering place****

For those who subscribe to Rural Metro Fire Services, don't forget that Rural Metro will replace the batteries in your smoke detectors at no charge, whether your smoke detectors are battery operated or hard wired. While many of the homes in San Tan Valley have "hard wired" alarms, meaning they are interconnected with a battery backup, Rural Metro will help not only replace the batteries, but they will also install any hard wired alarms that the homeowner owns, at no charge. Great benefit for those detectors that have passed the 10 year service life. If your home has battery operated smoke detectors, Rural Metro will add or replace the detectors themselves at no charge.
