​Checking your smoke detector


Your smoke detector is a round, white alarm located on the ceiling. 


There is a small test button on the alarm which is usually colored.  Push and hold the button for several seconds until you hear an alarm sound. 

If after 15-20 seconds there is no sound, change the battery and then repeat this test.


Your smoke detector may be powered by any of the following sources:

  1. Wired to the house wiring
  3. 9-Volt Battery operation
  5. 9-Volt Battery Back-up

Remember:  Never reinstall your smoke detector without a fresh battery!
