Why is my smoke alarm beeping?
If your smoke alarm is beeping, get out of the house immediately and call 911 from a neighbor’s house. You have very little time to get out of your house safely if there is a threat of fire, and we would much rather respond to a false alarm than have you risk becoming trapped. If your smoke alarm is beeping intermittently, try changing the battery; if it is still beeping and is over 10 years old, it needs to be replaced.
