Free Smoke Detector Program

Monday, March 31, 2014  The Collingswood Fire Department will be starting back up after the winter break on the free smoke detector and home safety inspections by block. This is a program that we instituted several years ago to offer free smoke detectors to our residents and offer to do a free home safety inspection. Crews will be going door to door on Richey Avenue and Stiles Avenue in the month of April. They will be in uniform, driving fire department marked vehicles and have official fire department ID's on their person. The detectors will be installed in your property at no charge.
