Smoke Detector Program

Working smoke detectors save lives! Odessa Fire Rescue has a smoke detector program to assist homeowners of Odessa and Ector County who do not have a working smoke detector. A member of the Fire Rescue Department will install a working smoke detector, at no charge to the owner. Contact Odessa Fire Rescue for additional information.


  • Maintain working smoke detectors; change the battery at least once per year and keep detectors clear of dust.
  • Note: the State of Texas requires the owner or agent of rental property to install a working smoke detector.
