Smoke Detectors

The International Property Maintenance Code states smoke detectors shall be installed on the ceiling or wall outside each separate sleeping area in the immediate vicinity of bedrooms, in each room used for sleeping and in each story within the house including basements.

Smoke detectors need to be replaced when they are 10 years old and batteries need to be replaced at least once per year with the time change suggested. Our slogan is "Change your clock, change your batteries."

Car Seat Checks

The Lincoln Park Fire Station hosts the car seat inspection station for the Safe Kids South Central the first Tuesday of each month from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Certified instructors and technicians are available for car seat checks, installation and sales along with fitting bicycle helmets. Make sure your baby, toddler or child is buckled correctly into the appropriate car seat or booster. Call 402-460-5884 (select 'Option 1') to schedule a car seat check.
