High Risk Smoke Alarm Campaign

The City of Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Service, in cooperation with the Fire Chiefs’ Association of BC and the Province of British Columbia, is offering a program whereby seniors and people living with disabilities can request a free smoke alarm for their household and/or assistance with testing any existing smoke alarms in the home.

Research has shown that the elderly, disabled, and other at-risk populations face the highest risk of dying in a residential fire.  It is recommended that one smoke alarm be installed on every level of a home. Through this program, the intent is to allow individuals at higher risk to continue to live independently and safely in their homes.

In order to request a visit from the Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Service and installation of a new smoke alarm, or testing of an existing one, please fill out the top portion of this Application Form. Once complete, click submit to email the form directly to the Fire Department or fax the form to 604-465-1195.  Depending on which email format you are using, you may need to save the completed form first and then email it as an attachment.

For additional assistance or information please contact us at 604-465-2401 or via email at fire@pittmeadows.bc.ca.
