What should I know about smoke alarms?

Properly installed smoke alarms provide an early warning to alert homeowners when there is a fire in their home. This gives a homeowner more time to get their family out of the house, or to extinguisher the fire with a fire extinguisher if it is safe to do so. But it is important to remember that smoke alarms require regular testing and maintenance to ensure they are providing you the best level of protection. This means you should test a smoke alarm at least once a month and change the battery at least once a year. The Trophy Club Fire Department provides free smoke alarms to people who cannot afford them or cannot safely install them in their home.
