LC-CFRS Kicking Off Annual Smoke Alarm Program to Protect Loudoun Residents

NF Free Smoke Alarm Assessments

The Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System’s annual smoke alarm program kicks off this Saturday, April 17, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in neighborhoods across Loudoun County. 

“During a house fire, you have an average of THREE minutes to escape your home,” said Fire Chief Keith Johnson. “Smoke Alarms provide you precious time to escape and reduce the risk of dying in a fire by half!”

As part of our annual smoke alarm program, firefighters from stations across Loudoun County are taking a hands-on approach to fire safety by canvasing neighborhoods one weekend a month from April to October. Our first responders will go door to door between 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. offering free smoke alarm assessments and valuable information about fire safety and home escape planning. Firefighters will be canvassing neighborhoods across Loudoun County on the following dates:

Saturday, April 17, 2021
Saturday, May 1, 2021
Saturday, June 5, 2021
Saturday, July 10, 2021
Saturday, August 7, 2021
Saturday, September 11, 2021
Saturday, October 2, 2021

During the assessment, firefighters will test existing smoke alarms, assist with battery replacement, and replace the smoke alarms at no cost if they are not working properly or exceed the ten-year recommended lifespan. Our personnel will maintain social distancing and wear face coverings at all times.

In addition to the scheduled smoke alarm canvasses through October, Loudoun residents can request a free smoke alarm assessment at any time by completing the online form at loudoun.gov/smokealarms or by calling the smoke alarm program hotline at 703-737-8093.
