Smoke Alarm Installation Program for Fire Agencies

The purpose of the Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal (OSFM) Smoke Alarm Installation Program (SAIP) is to provide smoke alarms to Oregon fire agencies to install in residences that are unprotected.

Steps to conducting a smoke alarm installation project
  • ​Eligibility:
    • The fire agency must have an Fire Department Identification number (FDID). If you are unsure of your FDID number, please visit the Active FDID Numbers web page.
    • The fire agency must be National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) compliant:
      • ​Cannot be missing more than one month of fire incident data over the previous 12 month period.
      • Must report responses to all fire incidents.
      • Failure to report incident data for at least a year after approval will result in ineligibility for future projects.
    • Must be in good standing with previous projects.
  • Program requirements:
    • The applicant must complete training on the program.
    • Submit a smoke alarm installation program application (see below). 
    • Install smoke alarms within 45 days of receiving the shipment.
    • Fill out smoke alarm installation/waiver forms for each residence where you installed a smoke alarm.
    • Submit installation/waiver forms to the OSFM within 10 days of installation.
The maximum number of smoke alarms that can be ordered per project is based on fire district population (see chart below).
