Park County Fire District #2 offers smoke detectors or battery replacement at no cost for residents that are unable to afford them. If you live in the district, are low or fixed income, elderly, or disabled and you need assistance, please contact us for a consultation.
Test: Smoke detectors should be tested once a month to make certain they are working. Change: Replace the batteries in your smoke alarm at least once a year. A good reminder is to change your battery when you change your clocks! Replace: Replace your smoke alarm every ten (10) years. If you don't know how old your smoke alarm is, or if it is ten (10) years or older, replace it as soon as possible. Remember: Smoke alarms save lives, but only if they are installed and working. The majority of fatality fires occur in homes without working smoke alarms.

On any given day this time of year, Cody winds mixed with the dry fuel and low humidity can contribute to rapid fire spread and extreme fire behavior. Several areas around the state are already experiencing these conditions, and many are already under red flag warnings - A red flag warning means critical fire weather conditions - strong winds, low humidity and warm temperatures - are present or imminent. There is no significant moisture in the forecast, which means these conditions may continue through the 4th of July holiday.
We hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday! Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
