Smoke Alarm/Battery Replacement Program

In recent years, home fires have killed approximately 3,000 people and have injured approximately 20,000 in the United States. Three-fifths of America's home-fire fatalities have occurred in homes without smoke alarms. More than half of all fatal fires happen at night. A household smoke alarm can mean the difference between life and death. Fire deaths are not usually from the fire itself but from the smoke the fire produces.

It is the goal of the Rockton Fire Protection District to have working smoke alarms in every home within the district boundaries. The safety of our residents is, and has always been, our priority.

When members of the fire district respond to an emergency call, they can check the smoke alarms within the home and replace batteries to ensure proper working condition. If the home does not have a working smoke alarm, the fire district can install one at NO COST to our residents.
