During the After the Fire event, according to the department, firefighters and public education officers go through the neighborhood and ask if residents have checked their smoke detectors.

If a home needs a smoke detector or battery changed, the firefighters will install either one.

The event is meant to bring awareness to the importance of working smoke detectors in a home, officials said. They say smoke detectors give valuable seconds needed to escape a house fire.
