What is a Veteran? Title 38 of the Code of Federal Regulations defines a veteran as “a person who served in the active military, naval, or air service and who was discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable.” This definition explains that any individual that completed a service for any branch of armed forces classifies as a veteran as long as they were not dishonorably discharged. 


Current or Veteran military service and immediate family member also qualify.

Our Environment Responsibility

10-Year Battery Alarms Installed

We consider 10-Year sealed battery alarms on each install, as it helps save local landfills and lower battery replacement costs.  When you mix batteries with  your trash, it all goes to the dump and gets smashed or buried. When batteries are crushed, all the acids and chemicals seep out and make their way to the bottom of the garbage pile and into the ground. If this happens, the chemicals and acids could get into the ground water and water supply. You need to be fully aware of what you are sending to the trash and what should go toward recycling so your local environment remains safe.

Proper Disposal of Old Smoke Alarms

Smoke detectors typically fall within two categories: photoelectric and ionization. Look on the back of the alarm for the name, model, date code and type.


Photoelectric detectors can be safely put in the trash, so long as you remove the battery first.


Ionization detectors contain a small amount of Americium 241, a radioactive isotope. When in use, these detectors are perfectly safe, as the radioactive material is shielded by a metal chamber inside the device. If dismantled, however, the radioactive material can become exposed. For this reason, you should never try to take apart an old ionization detector.


We send all old ionization smoke alarms back to the original manufacturers for disposal. This ensures the unit is not disrupted or disassembled without harming the environment.


Some local hazardous waste collection centers will accept ionization smoke detectors.


Please call us if you have any old alarms in need of disposal. We will help get them to the correct manufacturer for disposal.

Use Expired Fire Extinguishers for Home Owner Training

We believe in proper training for the homeowner. What best way to educate than with an expired fire extinguisher. Not only are we unsure the extinguisher will work correctly, but show the importance of a good extinguisher incase of a real fire.

Recycle of Old Fire Extinguishers

Once we have used old extinguishers for training purposes, we drop it off to the local metal recycle. Any money received goes directly back into the purchase of new ones for our donations.

Help Bridge The Gap

There is a gap today between new home construction codes and existing homes which have been occupied by families for years. Cities are currently adopting new codes, which require homes to be updated for the safety of the homeowners. When an existing home is bought or sold, smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms and radon systems are required. New homes come equipped with the safety devices already installed. Code Red Heart is raising the awareness of this gap and help bridge the disconnect. We want to help those who have been in their homes for years, and keep them safe.


In addition, most home owners do not check their alarms and extinguishers as stated in the manufacturer specifications. Some homeowners may be disabled and not have the ability to check the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms on a regular basis.
