Smoke Detector & Carbon Monoxide Alarm Program

Some of the concerns of all of us is the absence of smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms in many homes in our community.  Thanks to a grant from the Federal Government, the South Bend Fire Department wants everyone to have a smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarm in their home.

If you cannot afford a smoke alarm or carbon monoxide alarm, we will install one for you.

A homeowner is eligible for 2 free smoke detectors and 1 free carbon monoxide monitor. 

  • A homeowner is defined as the 'property owner of record' as opposed to 'tenant.'
