Smoke Alarms for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Seattle Residents

Free strobe smoke alarm
The Seattle Fire Department is providing and installing Gentex strobe smoke alarms that plug into an outlet. There is no cost for the smoke alarm or installation. A working smoke alarm is known to reduce the risk of dying in a home fire by 50%. The Seattle Fire Department is requesting your assistance in getting the word out to help make Seattle residents who are deaf or hard of hearing safer, should they experience a fire at home. 

To qualify, a person must be Deaf or Hard of Hearing and live in Seattle. Renters need permission from landlords before they can be installed.

Any Seattle resident who might be interested in a free Deaf/HOH smoke alarm, should contact Seattle Fire Department, Fire Prevention Division
