Programs

 

Smoke Detector Program 2017

 

CAL FIRE/ Butte County Fire has partnered with the Red Cross to provide free Smoke Alarms to the community members that we serve. Red Cross will provide the units free of charge and the the engine personnel will install the units for the home owner. We do not distribute smoke detectors from our stations, the program specially requires us to install. 

Feel Free to stop by your local station and inquire about this great community program.  

 

"Most fatal fires occur at night. Every home needs working smoke alarms to provide an early warning. Install smoke alarms in all sleeping rooms, hallways that lead to sleeping areas, basements and each additional level of your home. Smoke alarms should be mounted on the ceiling 4” from the wall; wall mounts should be 4-12” from the ceiling. Do not install near draft areas (windows, vents.). Call your local fire department if you are unsure about placement. A good time to remember to check your smoke alarm and change the batteries is when you change your clocks twice a year as daylight savings time begins and ends. Prepare and practice an escape plan! Crawl low under smoke. Plan where to meet outside. Once you’re out, Stay out! Remember, almost every day a smoke alarm saves somebody’s life."
