Free Home Smoke Alarms

Serving as your nose when you're asleep, working smoke alarms can mean the difference between the life and death of loved ones in the event of a house fire. The Victoria Fire Department is offering a free smoke alarm to residents who need one to ensure every Victoria home has a working smoke alarm.

Free Home Smoke Alarm Visit

Victoria residents can arrange for a free smoke alarm home visit by a Fire Prevention Officer, who will determine the best locations for a smoke alarm or test existing ones. If a resident requires a new smoke alarm, they will be provided one free of charge. The service is available to anyone who resides in the City of Victoria.

A working smoking alarm is the most important appliance in a home. It is an early warning device that can lessen the loss of life and property. There should be at least one smoke alarm on every level of a home.

In 2012, the Fire Chiefs Association of British Columbia and the Office of the Fire Commissioner launched a smoke alarm campaign to ensure that every home in the province has a working smoke alarm. The Victoria Fire Department is proud be participating in this province-wide campaign.
