The New Zealand Fire Service can provide you with domestic smoke alarms at minimal cost, and install them in your property for free. Contact your local fire brigade for details (see your White Pages under Fire Service).

If you already have smoke alarms installed in your property, remember to replace the old batteries with new ones at least once every six months. As a reminder, it is a good idea to replace them every time you adjust your clocks for daylight-saving. Your local brigade can replace the batteries in your existing smoke alarms for you if you are physically unable to do so (or if you're not sure how to).

If you are a Stokes Valley resident, please contact us to arrange for someone from our brigade to assist you with your smoke alarm requirements.
