Smoke Alarms

Free alarms and installation for City of South Lyon Residents!

You have only minutes to escape during a fire. Working smoke alarms save lives. More than 2,200 people die each year because of unintentional home fires. Almost two-thirds of these fire deaths occur in homes with no smoke alarms or with smoke alarms that don’t work. A smoke alarm’s warning can cut the risk of dying from a fire in your home by almost half!

Fire Safety Tips

  • Install a working smoke alarm on every level of your home, outside sleeping areas, and inside bedrooms.
  • Replace smoke alarm batteries once every year.
  • Always stay in the kitchen when cooking. Stand by your pan!
  • Know how to escape if there is a fire in your home. Have a plan and practice it with your family.
  • Replace smoke alarms that are more than 10 years old. They don’t last forever.

SLFD has a program for city residents where SLFD firefighters will install detectors at no charge to the residents.
