Testing your Smoke Alarms

Is your smoke alarm still working? A smoke alarm with a dead or missing battery is the same as having no smoke alarm at all.

Push test button and hold for 10-30 seconds. If the alarm does not sound, check the battery. If the battery is good, the alarm may need replacing.

You can schedule reminders in your smart phone calendar to make a sound like a smoke alarm beeping as a reminder to check your smoke alarms. You can also schedule an alarm to alert you to change your battery

Suggested reminders for you to check your smoke alarms:

  • Once A Week (9 volt)
  • Once A Month (10 yr lithium)
