  • Southfield Firefighters are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We maintain a readiness to respond to any and all calls for service to our citizens and visitors to the city.

  • Smoke detector batteries should be replaced every six months, so we recommend that you change them every time you change your clocks. In addition to changing your smoke detector batteries, your smoke detectors must be tested. Although smoke detectors differ by model (please review your installation and owners manual), most can be tested by pressing and holding the test button on the unit. The smoke detector will usually beep several times.
