     Why should I have a working smoke alarm?

        A properly installed and maintained smoke alarm is the only thing in your home that can alert you and your family to a fire 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whether youre awake or asleep, a working smoke alarm is constantly on alert, scanning the air for fire and smoke.

      According to the National Fire Protection Association, almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in properties without working smoke alarms. A working smoke alarm significantly increases your chances of surviving a deadly home fire.  

       If you are a homeowner and live within the city limits, the Shawnee Fire Department will install a new smoke alarm at no charge?
Call 273-4282 to schedule an appointment.
      If you rent, your landlord is responsible to provide a working smoke alarm on every floor. If you need a 9 volt battery replaced in an existing smoke alarm, this service is provided free of charge to home owners by calling 273-4282.
