Free smoke alarms for deaf & hearing disabled people in Dallas

The Dallas Fire-Rescue Department was given a grant to provide free smoke alarms for people who are deaf or hearing disabled.   The smoke alarms come equipped with smoke alarms, a receiver and bed-shaker designed to alert a person who has a hearing impairment that there is a fire.  Qualified individuals don’t even have to install them.  Instead, they’ll make arrangements with a Dallas Fire-Rescue Inspector to install the device correctly for free!

The requirements to qualify are:

  • You must be a resident of Dallas, TX
  • You must be a homeowner (or condo owner, etc.)
  • Provide proper documentation of your hearing disability (hearing test, letter from your physician or audiologist, etc.)

Details of the program, including a downloadable application can be found at or call Sheila Schulte at (214) 670-7016 for more information.

If you know anyone in Dallas who could benefit from this, please make sure they know about this program!
