The City of Ceres requires the owners/managers of apartment communities to provide working smoke detectors when tenants move in. However it is up to the tenant to ensure the smoke detectors continue to work. Test smoke detectors once a month and replace the battery at least once a year. Make sure smoke detectors are clean at all times.

There are no regulations mandating the servicing of fire extinguishers placed in single family residences. In apartments and all commercial buildings, fire extinguishers are required to be serviced once a year. To receive service on a residential fire extinguisher, please look under “fire extinguishers” in the Yellow Pages of your phone book for a local business.
Generally, a chirping sound means that the battery in your detector needs to be changed. If you would like assistance with a smoke or carbon monoxide detector, please give us a call at 209-538-5701 during business hours. We’d be glad to help if we can.
