Need a working up-to-date smoke alarm? Torrance Fire Department is coming to the rescue with free smoke alarms and installation for low-income families with children under the age of 18.

Torrance Fire reminds all of us that smoke alarms save lives. And when properly installed and maintained, they play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries.

So how often should you test the smoke alarms in your home or business or building? Smoke alarms should be tested at least once a month and replaced every 10 years.

For details on the free smoke alarms or fire prevention, contact the fire prevention office at (310) 781-7071.
