Free Smoke Alarms


The El Paso Fire Department offers a free Smoke Alarm program for members of the community. This program allows individuals (within the El Paso city limits) to request smoke detectors; we can install new alarms or replace expired alarms. Upon request, a member of the Community Risk Reduction program will contact you to set up an appointment. We will visit your home to install the alarms and demonstrate how they function.

The El Paso Fire Department also offers a smoke alarm program specifically geared towards assisting the Deaf and Hearing-Impaired communities. We install regular smoke detectors along with a special system that will alert the individual that the alarms have detected smoke. The system includes an alarm clock placed by your bedside; this clock includes a visual display alert, a strobe light, and a bed shaker. The system also includes another unit, a strobe light/detector that we will install in a common area, typically a living room. Many people can benefit from this special system we offer, and it is all installed for FREE by the El Paso Fire Department!
