Fire Safety

The Greenville City Fire Department provides smoke alarms and installation, free of charge, to city residents. You may use the city address locator to verify you live in the city limits.

To request a smoke alarm please request one with a Smoke Alarm Request Form. If you feel your smoke alarm is not functioning properly, you cannot afford an alarm or do not have an alarm, call 864-232-2273 to request a smoke alarm appointment.

Smoke alarms should be tested monthly and the batteries changed annually. If your alarm is sounding continuously, call 911.
