The Florida Fire Prevention Code requires single station 110 volt smoke detectors with a standby battery for multi-family occupancies. This requirement became code in 1989 and was enforced throughout the City. Therefore, the city does not provide those types of detectors. Residents who live in multi-family occupancies should already have the required detector.
For single family and duplexes you can request a smoke detector by going to http://www.lauderhill-fl.gov/, and click on to the Fire Department page smoke detector program link, or you can call the fire department headquarters at 954-730-2950. All requests for smoke detector assistance are responded to by our Fire Prevention Bureau.
