Smoke Detectors

  • Roughly two-thirds of home fire deaths happen in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. About one in five smoke alarm failures was due to dead batteries.
  • Working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in reported home fires in half.
  • In fires considered large enough to activate the smoke alarm, hardwired alarms operated 91% of the time, while battery powered alarms operated only 75% of the time.

Smoke detector batteries should be changed at least twice a year. The Kennedale Fire Department wants to help make every home safe. If you have limited financial resources, do not have a smoke detector, or need a new one please submit a smoke detector request form (PDF) to the Fire Department.
