The purpose of the Office of State Fire Marshal (OSFM) Smoke Alarm Installation Program is to protect Oregon’s citizens by providing free smoke alarms to Oregon fire agencies that agree to install them in communities that may be at risk due to a lack of working smoke alarms. Training and technical assistance is available to any Oregon fire agency interested in conducting a smoke alarm installation project.
