Change Smoke Alarm Batteries

The Claremore Fire Department encourages you to change smoke alarm batteries at least annually. An easy way to remember to change your batteries is when you turn you clock back in the fall. Replace old batteries with fresh, high-quality alkaline batteries. After inserting a fresh battery in your smoke alarm, check to make sure it is working by pushing the safety test button.


Count Smoke Alarms

Install at least one smoke detector on every level of your home, including one in every bedroom and one outside each sleeping area.


Vacuum Smoke Alarms

Each month, clean your smoke detectors of dust and cobwebs to ensure their sensitivity.

Keep a working flashlight near your bed, in the kitchen, basement, and family room, and use it to signal for help in the event of a fire. To make sure your emergency flashlights work when you need them, use high-quality alkaline batteries.


Install Fire Extinguishers

Install a fire extinguisher in, or near, your kitchen and know how to properly use it. Should you need to purchase one, the Claremore Fire Department recommends a multi- or all-purpose fire extinguisher that is listed by an accredited testing laboratory.

Make sure you have a home escape plan.
