Fire extringuisher and fire alarm
Free Smoke Detector
It is a proven fact that smoke detectors save lives. With very few exceptions, most fire fatalities occur in homes without a working smoke detector.

The Watauga Fire Department wants to ensure that you and your family remain safe in the event a fire occurs within your home. To accomplish this, the Fire Department, in conjunction with a grant from Walmart, is offering all Watauga residents without a working smoke detector a free detector to be installed by a member of the Fire Department staff.

To qualify, you must be a Watauga resident without a working smoke detector. Please provide your information and a Fire Department Representative will contact you to arrange an install date and time.
