A working smoke alarm provides early warning of a fire. Your chances for survival are two times better when smoke alarms are present than when they are not. Because the Sugar Land Fire Department is committed to life safety, we provide and install smoke alarms free of charge to any home (single family dwellings) within our fire jurisdiction.
There are three main ways that we provide and install free smoke alarms:
Following manufacturer’s directions for wall or ceiling placement, mount one smoke alarm outside each sleeping area (should be audible inside each bedroom with the door closed) and on each level of the home (minimum recommendations). The National Fire Protection Association recommends that you add a smoke alarm inside each bedroom for more protection. This is at the occupants discretion and cost.
