Smoke Detector Installation and Home Safety Inspections

Smoke alarms poster

The Bardstown Fire Department will come to your residence and install working smoke detectors free of charge.  We apply for grants each year to be able to buy smoke detectors to install in our community.  Early detection is key in limiting property loss and to getting everyone out of the home in case of a fire.  If you need working smoke detectors or would like a home safety inspection contact us at 349-6562 to make an appointment.  If you rent and you do not have working smoke detectors contact the Fire Marshal at 349-6562 or at 203-3931 as the landlord is required by law to ensure that you have working smoke detectors.

CPR Training for the Public
The Bardstown Fire Department will host AHA and BLS CPR and first aid by request.  A minimum class size of 4 is required to hold the class.  We also will do this for industries on site.  Please call the station at 502-349-6562 or contact Todd Spalding at to reserve a spot.
