Smoke Alarm For Every Family Program
A working smoke alarm is a basic, fundamental requirement for home fire safety. We are most vulnerable to fire when we sleep. A working smoke alarm provides the protection required.
Complete the online form or contact 311 to sign up for your FREE smoke alarm, installed by WFPS crews.
The installation of smoke alarms through the S.A.F.E. Family Program is suspended until further notice.
The S.A.F.E Family (Smoke Alarm For Every Family) is a residential smoke alarm installation program run within the City of Winnipeg by the Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) in partnership with The Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund Inc. and Red River Mutual Insurance Company. The goal is to supply and install a smoke alarm in owner-occupied households not equipped with a working smoke alarm. If a homeowner does not have the resources to supply and install their own smoke alarm for any reason they are free to apply to have one provided by the program.
S.A.F.E. Family Program is not available to rented homes and apartments. If you live in a rental property and you do not have a working smoke alarm, fill out the online form and a Fire Inspector will contact you and resolve the issue with the property owner.
Winnipeg Fire Department on duty members will install the smoke alarms on Saturdays between 10 a.m. and noon, or between 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. Applicants will be contacted in advance to book an appointment. Homeowners must sign a liability waiver immediately prior to installation to receive this service.
