According to the National Fire Protection Association, having a working smoke alarm reduces the chance of dying in a fire by more than half. This is why the Green Valley Fire District encourages all homeowners to make sure they have properly working smoke alarms and that they are checked routinely.
In support of this effort, the Green Valley Fire District is proud to offer two programs to help ensure all homeowners have properly working smoke alarms in their homes.
- First, is our Smoke Alarm Battery Program , which allows homeowners to have their smoke alarm batteries changed on a regular schedule for a small fee of $20 for a standard number of alarms (8 or fewer).
- The second program is our Smoke Alarm Replacement Program, which allows our residents to purchase hard wired with a battery backup smoke alarms directly from the Fire District for $20 each, installed by our Fire Corps volunteers. Both of these programs have proven to be extremely successful.
In 2016, the Green Valley Fire District changed more than 11,000 smoke alarm batteries and installed over 3,200 smoke alarms in our local communities.
