Free Smoke Alarm Installation Program

Receive a Free Smoke Alarm and Installation

The Surrey Fire Service is committed to ensuring that all of the citizens of Surrey, especially our most vulnerable demographics, are protected by a functioning smoke alarm. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I have working smoke alarms in my home?
  • Does my smoke alarm sound when I push the test button?
  • Have I changed my smoke alarm(s) within the last 10 years?

If your answer to any of these questions is "no" and you live in a single-family home, duplex or townhouse, you can ask the Surrey Fire Service to install a free smoke alarm. This device will ensure that you and your family are protected until you can have your existing interconnected hard-wired alarms serviced by a professional electrician.  Please complete the electronic submission form at the bottom of the page and a member of the department will be in touch to schedule your smoke alarm installation.

HomeSafe Program

If you are unsure of the status of your smoke alarms, we can help you with that too. Ask the department for a Homesafe Inspection. During the Homesafe Inspection, members of the department will:

  • check your smoke alarms
  • make cooking safety recommendations
  • check for safe use of electrical devices including extension cords and power bars
  • discuss candle, matches and lighter safety
  • go over your home fire escape plan
  • cover a variety of fire and general safety topics

There is no cost for a Homesafe Inspection. If your smoke alarms are not working, we will install a new alarm for free. At the end of the inspection, we will provide you with a written record of our findings and recommendations. This record is for your use only and does not carry any legal obligations.

You may request a Homesafe Inspection in the electronic submission form at the bottom of the page.

More information about the Homesafe program can be found in the Homesafe Brochure and Inspection links provided below (English and Punjabi).
