Community Programs

In addition to Fire Prevention & Education we offer the following community programs to our citizens. 

Smoke Alarm Installation 

Working smoke alarms gives you the earliest warning to get out of your home and gives you the best chance to survive a fire in your home!

Did you know…Smoke alarms should be installed in every bedroom, in a common area outside the bedrooms, and at least one on each floor of your house?

Smoke alarms should be replaced every ten years, even when they sound upon testing them?

The Black Mountain Fire Department is currently performing home safety visits for residents who live within the Town of Black Mountain!  If you live within the city limits, you may be eligible for a home safety visit which includes installing smoke alarms if needed. Please note, if you rent an apartment or house in Black Mountain, the owner or management company is responsible for installing and repairing smoke alarms.

If you are interested in a home safety visit please submit a request.

Reflective 911 Address Signs

Make sure that the Fire Department and EMS can find your house when you need them. Let the BMFD Volunteers construct and install your 911 Address Sign. Each of our signs are 100% reflective, making them easy to see even at night in the rain. We have a few options available for purchase through the Volunteer Firefighters Association. Alternate color choices are available.
