Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery Campaign

The City of Carbondale Fire Department joins forces with the International Association of Fire Chiefs every year for the “Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery” campaign to save lives and prevent needless injuries. The program urges everyone to adopt a simple, lifesaving habit: change smoke alarm batteries when changing clocks back to standard time.

Support & Smoke Detector Installation

The City of Carbondale, with support from the Office of the State Fire Marshal and the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance, will provide and install for free a smoke detector, as well as replace smoke alarm batteries for any person's home in Carbondale that cannot afford to purchase one. We encourage citizens to take advantage of this program.
