Smoke Detector Program

Working smoke detectors can greatly increase your chances of surviving a fire in your home or office. That's why the City of Florence Fire Department encourages all citizens to install and maintain approved smoke detection devices in every bedroom and on each level of their residence. The smoke detector program is designed to insure that smoke detection devices are installed in all City of Florence residences, including those of senior citizens, disabled citizens, or persons living on a fixed income.

Since the majority of fire deaths that occur in residential occupancies are caused by smoke inhalation, it is important that all City of Florence citizens have the early warning a smoke detector can provide. Florence Fire Department officials help citizens in need to install smoke detectors free of charge and remind homeowners/occupants to clean and test smoke detectors once a month and replace batteries at least once a year. The Florence Fire Department can also provide citizens in need with a new battery. For more information or to participate in the smoke detector program call 843-665-3231 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, Monday thru Friday.
