Smoke Detector Inspections & Battery Swaps

One of the many wonderful benefits Addison has to offer to its residents is the Annual Smoke Detector Battery Replacement Program. Each year in October, our firefighters visit single-family dwelling homes in Addison to replace old smoke detector batteries with new batteries.

During our visit, residents may elect to have a home inspection, which allows our firefighters to conduct a brief walk-through to indicate any signs of fire hazards.

Single-family dwelling residents should expect to receive a postcard from the Fire Chief in September with instructions for scheduling. The Fire Department provides the batteries and a ladder (if necessary). This service is provided at no charge to the resident, but must be scheduled.
