Vigilant Guard Exercise


Test Your Smoke Detector

Make Sure Your Smoke Alarms Work.

Remember to test your smoke alarm and change your clock on March 8.

Smoke alarms save lives. Keep your family safe.  Put working smoke alarms in your home.

  • Your family is not safe if they can't hear the smoke alarms.
  • Test your smoke alarms.  Puth the test button.  You will hear a loud noise.  If you don't hear the noise, you need a new battery or a new alarm.  Fix this immediately.
  • Make sure the smoke alarm always has a good battery.  Put a new battery in the alarm every year.
  • Smoke alarms with long-life batteries will work for up to 10 years.  You do not change the battery.
  • Smoke alarms do not last forever.  Get new smoke alarms every 10 years.
