Smoke alarm program
Due to the unfortunate tragedy of a fire related death that took place last week, through awareness and taking preventive steps, future lives can be saved. It is highly important to have a working smoke alarm with a working battery in your home. If you have that, it greatly lowers your chances of dying in a fire.
As a reminder, for the past 35 years, the city has in place a smoke alarm program made available to residents.
The Sanford Fire Department will provide and install smoke detectors in your home. The City and Seminole County have partnered through a grant to obtain the smoke detectors. These are battery operated smoke detectors and are supplied free of charge for those that request them.
To receive a smoke detector, a smoke detector installation and request form needs to be filled out. Please visit the city’s website at www.sanfordfl.gov or contact our Fire Prevention Office at 407-688-5000 Ext. 5300 for more information.
