Fire Prevention and Education

Free Smoke Detector Program

Home fires claim seven lives every day, but having working smoke alarms can cut the risk of death by half by warning residents of a fire, allowing them time to escape safely.

The City of Madison Fire Department will provide and install a free smoke alarm for ANY Madison resident living in a single-family or two-family residence.

To request a smoke detector call the fire department at 812-265-8350 or fill out the form HERE.
