Firefighters will be visiting homes and conducting smoke detector tests with local homeowners. These visits will focus on ensuring that a home has an adequate number of detectors, the detectors are properly placed, and a test will also be performed to ensure that the detectors are working properly. The firefighters will also be available to answer any questions that the homeowner may have regarding maintenance of detectors or other related fire safety questions.
