SMOKE ALARMS FOR VISION / HEARING IMPAIRED


"The Oklahoma City Fire Department believes so strongly in the importance of having working smoke alarms that we implemented the “Project Life” smoke alarm program. Through donations and fund-raising efforts, The Oklahoma City Fire Department maintains a supply of long-life smoke alarms which we provide to our residents free of charge. We will come to your home and install them for you to ensure that they are in the proper locations. We believe every home in Oklahoma City should have working smoke alarms. If you are an Oklahoma City resident and need new smoke alarms, please complete the request form by clicking on the smoke alarm at the top of this page.  You may also call 405-316-BEEP (2337) to schedule your free installation.
