Smoke Detector Program

The Importance of Smoke Alarms


To ensure that all Derby residents have early warning in case of a fire in their residence, Derby Fire & Rescue offers a free Smoke Detector Program to all residents to provide them with complimentary installation of a free smoke detector for each level of their home. Fire personnel will come to your home and install smoke detectors where they are needed. The smoke detector and service are provided by the City of Derby.

Effects of Not Having a Smoke Alarm


An estimated 20% of United States homes do not have working smoke detectors. In nearly all of these homes the reason for smoke detectors not working properly is due to dead or missing batteries. Nearly one-third of residential fires and two-fifths of residential fire fatalities occur in homes with no smoke alarms.
