Smoke Detector Program & Checks

About the Program

The City of Oviedo Fire Department offers a free Smoke Detector and Alarm Program to Oviedo residents who are financially unable to maintain a working smoke alarm in their homes. Smoke Detector/Alarms offer an "early" warning that a potentially serious fire has occurred in the home and affords you and your family precious moments to successfully escape a fire. Contact our Fire Rescue Administration Office at 407-971-5611 to see if you qualify for the program.

Scheduling an Inspection

If you wish to schedule a free inspection or change batteries in your Smoke Detector/Alarm that is too high, you may contact Seminole County Non-Emergency Dispatch at 407-665-5100 to schedule an appointment. An adult must be present in the home at the time of inspection and service.

  • Maintain a working Smoke Detector/Alarm on each floor of the home.
  • Add additional Smoke Detectors/Alarms in each bedroom.
