Smoke Alarm Safety Check

Chandler Fire testing a resident's smoke alarm

The Chandler Fire Department's Smoke Alarm Program uses trained volunteers to ensure that there are working smoke alarms in every Chandler home.

Volunteers can:

  • Test smoke alarms and change batteries.
  • Install battery-operated smoke alarms purchased by the homeowner.
  • Provide free smoke alarm(s) to qualifying individuals or families in need.
  • Volunteers cannot do wiring or electrical work. If your home has hardwired smoke alarms, our volunteers will be happy to replace the batteries, but they will not service or install hardwired alarms.

To make an appointment, please call 480-782-2160.
