The Worland Fire Department recommends that you install at least one smoke alarm on every level of your home. Smoke alarms are designed to wake you up if a fire starts while you are sleeping. Be sure your smoke alarms are near bedrooms and other sleeping areas in your home. Smoke Detectors are available for qualified home owners and residents with the District.

When was the last time you heard your smoke alarm? Battery-operated alarms should be tested once a month to make certain they are working.

Replace the batteries in your smoke alarm at least once a year. The Worland Fire Department recommends you do this when you change your clocks in the spring and fall.

Replace your smoke alarm every ten (10) years. If you don't know how old your smoke alarm is, or if it is ten (10) years or older, replace it as soon as possible.

Smoke alarms save lives, but only if they are installed and working. The majority of fatality fires occur in homes without working smoke alarms.

New smoke detectors and 9 volt batteries are accepted to help fund this life-saving program. They may be dropped off at Station 1, located at 200 South 5th Street in Worland.

If you or your organization would like to donate new smoke detectors and/or 9 volt batteries to our program, please contact Chief Chris Kocher at 307-347-6379.
