Residents are reminded that they can still call to have the Fire Department install free smoke alarms at their homes.
Funded through a competitive federal grant, the program provides the free installation of the free alarms to any owner-occupied household, regardless of income.
Call 313-943-2134 to set up an appointment for installation. Appointments are typically only available Monday-Friday.
Properly installed and working smoke alarms have been shown to drastically reduce the chance of dying in a house fire.
“We continue installing free smoke detectors because we know they save lives,” said Dearborn Fire Chief Joseph Murray.
Rental properties do not qualify for the smoke detector program because under Building Codes, they are required to have working alarms already. People living in rental properties with no working smoke alarms should call 313-943-2134 and report this life safety violation.
