We currently have a Smoke Alarm Installation Program which has been funded by a Federal Grant from FEMA. This program provides FREE LIVE SAVING benefits to the citizens of this community. These benefits include:

  • Free smoke alarms for citizens that do not have any. These alarms can be installed by firefighters of the Big Walnut Joint Fire District.

  • Survey of any current smoke alarms within the residence including replacing batteries, replacing outdated alarms and education on testing maintaining smoke alarms within the home.

  • Conducting a home fire safety inspection and a counseling regarding ways to improve home fire safety in the home.

Smoke alarm quantities are limited, applications will be reviewed and alarms will be installed on a priority basis. 

To enroll in this program you must:

  1. Fill out the application in full. 

  2. Agree to allow firefighters to install the proper amount of smoke alarms in the proper locations in your home, in accordance with NFPA 72.

  3. Agree to allow firefighters to conduct a fire safety inspection of your home to identify potential fire hazards.

  4. Agree to meet with the firefighters to discuss improvements you can make in your home to prevent an outbreak of fire.
