Today is a good day to “Spring Into Safety” by checking to ensure your home has working smoke alarms. Properly installed, working smoke alarms can dramatically increase your chances of surviving a fire.
It is also important to check the date on your smoke alarm. If your smoke alarms are ten years of age or older they need to be replaced.
Need help checking or replacing your smoke alarms? Your FCFRD firefighters offer a FREE smoke alarm check, home safety evaluation, and installation of a new smoke alarm.
To schedule a smoke alarm installation, including a visual smoke alarm for deaf and hard of hearing persons, or a home safety evaluation, please contact Community Risk Reduction either via email at fire.ESW@fairfaxcounty.gov or phone at (703) 246-3801 (TTY 711).
