Deltona Fire Rescue is committed to educating our residents on fire safety and prevention. The best way to prevent fires is to be prepared.
We are proud to provide free residential smoke alarms and replacement batteries to Deltona homeowners, who cannot financially afford to purchase them on their own.
Our firefighters will schedule a time to respond to your residence and install smoke alarm(s) with a ten year life expectancy battery in the proper recommended locations. Proper placement of smoke alarms is critical to the early detection of smoke and should be placed between the sleeping quarters and the rest of the house.
This program is offered to Deltona homeowners with privately owned single family residences. We can not provide alarms or batteries to rental properties. Please refer to your rental agreement. Rental properties are required to have smoke alarms and maintained batteries in accordance with the Florida Fire Prevention Code National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 101 Chapters 26,30, and 31.
To request a smoke alarm or batteries for your current smoke alarm, please call 386-575-6901.
Home Fires Won't Wait, Plan & Practice Your Escape
Along with having smoke alarms, your family should always have a plan. If a fire breaks out in your home, you may have only a few minutes to get out safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Everyone needs to know what to do and where to go if there is a fire.

American Red Cross Sound the Alarm and Save Lives Program
In 2017, Deltona Fire Rescue established a partnership with the American Red Cross to conduct Smoke Alarm Rallies in At-Risk Communities.
Members of Deltona Fire Rescue and our Explorers, along with the American Red Cross Volunteers coordinate rally events throughout the year in identified communities to install 10 year lithium battery alarms.
