SBFD offering smoke and carbon monoxide detectors for free

Posted: Updated:

With Daylights Savings Time happening this weekend members of the Scottsbluff Fire Department are reminding residents to check their smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
 
The fire department suggests that people should remember to take the necessary steps when checking detectors in their homes.

Experts say batteries in detectors need to be changed at least twice a year even if they are hardwired into the home's electrical system.

Scottsbluff Fire Department Public Information Officer Justin Houston says anyone wanting to receive a detector can contact the fire department.
 
"Our goal with this detector program is we want to get detectors into every single house. That's why we started this program. That's why they're available for free to the public. So if you do not have a detector please contact us. We can come install them or if you want to come just pick them up and put them in your house."

Houston notes the department can install detectors to residents within Scottsbluff city limits.

The fire department can be contacted by calling 308-630-6231 or by visiting www.scottsblufffire.org and click on the "Detector Program" link.
