Smoke Detectors & Fire Extinguishers
Please remember to change the batteries in your smoke detectors at least twice per year. Think about your smoke detector batteries when you change your clocks to and from daylight savings time. Test your smoke detectors every thirty days. Smoke detectors save lives, and no home should be without smoke detectors.
Free for Residents
The Wrightsville Beach Volunteer Firefighters Association offers free smoke detectors and fire extinguishers to Town residents and property owners (limit 1 per household). Please call to schedule delivery.
If you burn fossil fuels in your home (oil, gas, wood) we recommend that you install carbon monoxide detectors. Please see our fire prevention page
for more safety tips.
