The Fire Department wants to ensure that all residents check their smoke alarm batteries on Sunday, November 2, when they move their clock back one hour for daylight savings time. On average, 60% of fire related deaths result from fires in the homes with no smoke alarms or smoke alarms that were not working properly. The Fire Department offers free batteries and the installation of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms for residents of Laguna Beach. To participate in the Smoke Alarm

Program, please visit the city’s website and complete the “Free Smoke Alarm” sign up form at A representative from the Fire Department will contact you and schedule an appointment to determine how many detectors are needed and install them.
