The City of Knoxville Fire Department recognizes working smoke alarms save lives; therefore, it created the Smoke Alarm Program. This program provides smoke alarms and replacement batteries free of charge to residents of single-family dwellings who cannot afford to purchase them or who are unable to safely perform these tasks.
Residents living in rental properties or condominiums should contact their landlord or property owner's association for smoke alarms and/or batteries.
Each engine company will install smoke alarms and batteries in residences within its primary response territory. This will ensure the alarms are properly installed and residents understand how to perform monthly tests.
For more information on receiving or replacing smoke alarms or to obtain battery replacements, please call 3-1-1 or 865-215-4311 during normal business hours (Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 4:30 pm).
