Smoke Alarms/Assistance for the Deaf

Smoke Alarms Program

At the Orange County Fire Authority, we take pride in our hands-on involvement within the communities we serve. Our smoke alarm installation program has helped numerous residents obtain, install and maintain smoke alarms in their homes.

One of the best ways to save lives and protect your home is to make sure it has functioning, properly installed smoke alarms. The OCFA Smoke Alarm program is meant to educate the community on proper smoke alarm installation and how to routinely inspect your home’s smoke alarms.

As part of the program, we install free smoke alarms to our residents that need them. Additionally, our OCFA crews will go out and inspect residents’ homes to ensure smoke alarms are working properly and replace non-working smoke alarms as needed and free of charge.

Approximately twice a year the OCFA hosts larger smoke alarm events. The smoke alarm installation events are in partnership with the American Red Cross and approximately 300 smoke alarms are installed in a neighborhood in one day. The smoke alarm installation events are geared toward at-risk households that may not have smoke alarms currently installed.
