Free Smoke & Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarms for Seniors & Low-Income Families

South King Fire and Rescue is committed to keeping our citizens protected with smoke and CO alarms. We have funding from local and state organizations for the distribution of free smoke detectors and CO alarms with batteries to senior citizens or families with low or fixed incomes who live within the fire jurisdiction. The District will install detectors and batteries for those who are unable to do so themselves.

Please email or call 253-946-7347 for more information.

Fall Prevention

Educators will visit your home to do a safety survey. They will provide education on the reasons why falls happen and give you ideas on how to reduce injuries at home. They can also install risk reduction devices. You must be 50 years or older, live independently, have either fallen in the past or be at risk of falling, and live within King County to qualify for the program. 

For more information or to schedule a home visit, please contact our CARES Team via email or call 253-288-5887.
