 Smoke Detector Program

If you are a resident within the City of Seneca, you qualify for a free smoke detector for your home.  We ask for those who are in need enquire as our surplus is limited.  Our goal is to have every home in the city with a working smoke detector on every level of the home.

If you are in need of a smoke detector -

Please contact the Seneca Fire Department at 885-2738 or send an email to info@senecafd.com

Smoke Detector Tips
  • Test smoke detectors at least once a month. Nearly all smoke detectors have a test button, simply push the test button and the alarm will sound.
  • It's recommended to change your battery at least twice per year.
  • Clean smoke detectors at least once a year. Dust and other particles in the air can build up over time and decrease the sensitivity of a smoke detector. The best way to clean a smoke detector is with a vacuum hose.
  • Replace the entire smoke detector at least once every ten years. Smoke detectors do wear out over time.
  • Hard-wired smoke detectors should be tested, cleaned, and replaced just as often as non-wired smoke detectors.
  • Every bedroom should have a smoke detector. It's also recommended to put one in living rooms, kitchens and hallways. You can never have too many!
  • If you would like assistance in testing the alarm, replacing batteries, would like help relating to installing your new smoke detector, please call us. A SFD firefighter can come to your home and help you.

Smoke Detector Facts
  • Smoke detectors increase your chance of surviving a fire by 50%.
  • An estimated 1/3 of American homes have smoke detectors that do not work.
