Another poster says there were/are defective First Alert detectors installed by the Villages and that First Alert will send replacements at N/c against serial numbers.

Plan-I will call the fire dept and see what they have to say.
So far, I've not really looked at it while I was fully awake.
There are people whose job it is to do the battery replacement during regular hours do not call 911 for this.
You have to supply the batteries or the detectors if they are bad and they will install them for you. They recommend you change the batteries every year I believe that is over kill.

My main point here is that 3 beeps is a bad detector and single beeps are for failing batteries so you know what to have when they come out.
