    Smoke Detectors

    The Lynchburg Fire Department wants to ensure that every home in the City of Lynchburg has a working smoke detector. Operation Smoke Detector is a community service initiative provided by the Lynchburg Fire Department. Smoke detectors have been donated by local organizations,  enabling us to install them into homes within the city limits free of charge.

    While installing smoke detectors, the Lynchburg Fire Department also provides smoke detector tips and stress the importance of changing the batteries when you change your clock for Daylight Savings Time, lightly vacuuming the detector every month, and NEVER EVER taking the batteries out without replacing them or the detector.  

    If you, a neighbor, or family member are without smoke detectors in your home, please call us at (434)455-6342 or (434) 455-6375 to request one.  If you are a tenant in need of a smoke detector, please notify your landlord of this requirement as soon as possible. If you are still having problems getting smoke detectors installed, please call our office.
