Turn Your Attention to Fire Prevention

FD New Logo 2018

Working in conjunction with the Alabama Fire Chief’s Turn Your Attention to Fire Prevention Campaign and in an effort to reduce the loss of life due to home fires, effective immediately the City of Pelham Fire Department will begin installing smoke detectors in residential structures within our city limits. The detectors were provided by the State of Alabama and the battery and detector are both good for 10 years.

Homeowners are encouraged to check the age of their smoke detectors. Any detector older than 10 years needs to be replaced. Furthermore, residents should check their smoke detector on the first day of every month to insure they are in good working order.

Home owners will be provided up to 3 smoke detectors at no cost along with a home exit plan form to be completed with their family.

Residents of Pelham are asked to call 205-620-6500 to make an installation request. Detectors will be installed between the hours of 8:00 am and 6:00 pm Monday through Friday unless there is a request for a weekend installation.

The intent of this program is to save lives. Community Risk Reduction is something our department is very passionate about and we are simply doing our part to insure our citizens are safe in their own homes.” - Tim Honeycutt, Fire Chief
