Smoke Detectors Save Lives.
The most dangerous time for a fire to strike is at night when you are sleeping. Smoke containing poisonous gases can overcome you before you wake up. A smoke detector helps save your life. The Hurst Fire Department is committed to ensuring that each residence in the city possess at least one operational smoke detector. If you need a smoke detector, a replacement battery, or assistance in testing your detector, please contact Fire Prevention at (817) 788-7238. We also have smoke detectors for the hearing impaired. Test your smoke detector monthly, replace the battery each Spring and Fall when you reset your clocks, and BE SAFE.
The Hurst Fire Department believes smoke detectors are so important that we also have adopted a city code that requires every detector in all apartment complexes in Hurst be tested annually. These tests are performed by Fire Department personnel and immediate action is taken to solve failures.
