Smoke Alarm Program

Canby Fire applies each year to receive smoke alarms from the Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal Smoke Alarm Installation Program. The purpose of this program is to provide smoke alarms to Oregon fire agencies to install in residences that are unprotected. Because we are limited on the amount of alarms we receive each year, we kindly ask that only those with a financial need contact us for an alarm.

Canby Fire crews are more than happy to help ANYONE install or check their current or new smoke alarms or carbon monoxide detectors. Please call our main station at 503-266-5851 to let us know you are interested.

Canby Fire / School District Training

We love kids and we love to teach them about safety! Canby Fire and Canby Police join together to participate in training for lock down, earthquake drills, and fire alarms.

Canby Fire provides Stop the Bleed and CPR/AED training to all 7th and 8th graders in the Canby School District.

Call us to set up a time for your class to come visit the fire station for a tour, for our crews to visit your school for a safety presentation, or for general questions on safety at the school or in the classroom.
