Free Smoke Detector Program

Get a Free Smoke Detector

The Free Smoke Detector Program is supported by local civic groups and fire associations within the County and has been in place for more than 20 years. In an effort to make sure that our citizens are protected in the event of a fire, we will provide you with a free smoke detector if you are a resident of Rockingham County.

If you are in need of a detector, just fill out the Application for Free Smoke Detector. Once we receive your application, you will receive a phone call from your local fire department.They will come to your home to install the detector at a time that is convenient to you.
