Free Smoke Alarm Inspection & Installation for Seniors
The Cherry Hill Fire Department understands that senior citizens may not be able to afford, test, or change the battery in their smoke alarm; therefore that service is provided for you. If you need a smoke alarm or are not sure that yours are in proper working order, please call 856-429-7441 to schedule an appointment. If it needs to be replaced, the Fire Department will install a 10-year long life battery powered smoke alarm free of charge.
