High Risk Smoke Alarm Giveaway Campaign

High Risk Smoke Alarm Campaign

The City of Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Service, in cooperation with the Fire Chiefs' Association of BC and the Province of British Columbia, is offering a program whereby seniors and people living with disabilities can request a free smoke alarm for their household and/or assistance with testing any existing smoke alarms in the home.

Research has shown that the elderly, disabled, and other at-risk populations face the highest risk of dying in a residential fire. It is recommended that one smoke alarm be installed on every level of a home. Through this program, the intent is to allow individuals at higher risk to continue to live independently and safely in their homes.

In order to request a visit from the Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Service and installation of a new smoke alarm, or testing of an existing one, download and fill out the application form. For more information on the program, visit the Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Service website.

For additional assistance or information please contact us at 604-465-2401 or via email at fire@pittmeadows.bc.ca.
