Keep you and your loved ones protected
Whether you own or rent, we’re here to help protect the place you call home. We created our annual battery project to help you keep your smoke alarms in good working order and bring awareness to fire prevention.
Every year, we mail a set of 9-volt batteries and safety reminders to customers—it’s just another way we can help provide peace of mind.

- Install smoke alarms on every level of your home.
- Test the alarms regularly and change batteries at least once a year.
- Never disable or remove smoke alarm batteries.
- Develop a fire escape plan and practice with small children.

- Make sure safety bars on windows can be opened from inside your home.
- Escape the dwelling first, then call for emergency assistance.
