What is the program?
After noticing an uptick in 911 fire calls in the Sun City Summerlin area for smoke alarms going off without a cause, Las Vegas Fire & Rescue determined that smoke alarms had passed their 10 year shelf life and needed to be replaced. The Fire Prevention office partnered with the Sun City Neighborhood Preparedness Team to launch a pilot program that connect residents with new installed smoke alarms and vital fire and life safety education for a reasonable fee.
How can I participate?
The program is open to Sun City Summerlin residents. Stay tuned to the Sun City Summerlin LINK magazine for upcoming town hall dates to sign up for the program this winter.
How much does it cost?
What is the timeline?
The program will be active in the coming years as officials attempt to serve all 7,000+ residents.
Why should I take part?
Smoke alarms are only guaranteed for 10 years. Most homes in the Sun City Summerlin area were built in the 90s, meaning smoke alarms are expired and are no longer guaranteed to protect you and your family in the event of a fire. By taking part in this program, you can get new smoke alarms and have them installed by certified professionals.
Who has taken part so far?
47 homes have had their smoke alarms replaced so far as part of this program.
