Fire Department Home Safety (Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector) Program

The Boxborough Fire Department is pleased to announce a Home Safety Checkup Program.  A firefighter will visit your home to perform the following:  1) Check each smoke and carbon monoxide detector in the home to ensure that it is functioning properly on the day of the visit, 2) Replace the batteries in these devices, 3) Ensure that houses are properly numbered to assist emergency personnel with locating your house in the event of an emergency and 4) Make recommendations if required smoke or carbon monoxide detectors are missing or expired.  For residents with children, firefighters will also reinforce messages learned in the classroom on proper exit plans and meeting places.  All of this is provided free of charge to Boxborough residents. 

To register, please visit the department's website at  All questions on this program should be directed to Lt. Jason Malinowski at
