NEW.......SMOKE ALARM PROGRAM

The City of Manchester Fire Department recognizes working smoke alarms save lives; therefore, it created the Smoke Alarm Program. This program provides smoke alarms and replacement batteries free of charge to residents of single-family dwellings who cannot afford to purchase them or who are unable to safely perform these tasks. Residents living in rental properties or condominiums should contact their landlord or property owner's association for smoke alarms and/or batteries.

If you are in need of a new smoke alarm or replacement batteries, please contact the City of Manchester Fire Department Fire Prevention Bureau at 603-669-2256 during normal business hours (Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm).
