Free Smoke Alarms for Those in Need

In the event of a fire, having a working smoke alarm could mean the difference between life and death for you and your loved ones! Having properly installed and maintained smoke alarms will provide an early warning signal so you and your family can escape, unharmed.

The Lakeland Fire Department offers free smoke alarms to those who cannot afford them due to financial circumstances. However, to keep the program available for those who are truly in need, we ask that you attest to the following:

  • I am a resident of the City of Lakeland.
  • I am the homeowner of the residence in which I reside.
  • I am not renting nor leasing the residence in which I reside.
  • I cannot otherwise afford to equip my home with smoke alarms.  (Regular smoke alarms retail $10.00-30.00 each)
  • I am not using this residence for any commercial, business, or otherwise for-profit purposes. (e.g. assisted living facility, daycare, rental, etc.)
  • I am responsible for requesting a replacement from the manufacturer and/or following the specified guidelines that occur as a consequence of a recall.
If you can attest to all of the statements above, you are eligible for the Lakeland Fire Department's Smoke Alarm Program.
Smoke alarms for the hearing impaired are also available for free through this program. 
For more information regarding LFD's Smoke Alarm program, please call (863)834-8201 or visit the Administration Building located at 701 E. Main Street, Lakeland, FL 33801.
* The department does not provide carbon monoxide monitors, alarms, or detectors.
