Older adults are at a greater risk than any other group when it comes to fire safety. This can result from physical and mental limitations as well as a lack of financial resources. In order to protect older adults in our community, the Milton Fire Department has started the Seniors Smoke Alarm Program.

You can also register by calling us at 905-878-9251. We schedule appointments from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily, except on Sundays and statutory holidays.

Eligibility

This program is open to owner-occupied single family homes in Milton. You must be 65 or older to qualify for this program. We will come to your home and provide and install the required number of smoke alarms and batteries.

If you live in a rental property, it is the owner’s responsibility to install and maintain smoke alarms. If you have concerns with smoke alarm operation, maintenance or installation, please contact us at 905-878-9251.

Program support

Community organizations and businesses generously give grants so that we can purchase carbon monoxide alarms and smoke alarms. These alarms are then installed in the homes of our community’s most vulnerable families.
