Free Door Alarms Available




In an effort to prevent drownings and bring awareness to water safety, Orange County Fire Rescue partnered with The Gunner Martin Foundation and purchased 1000 door alarms to install in Orange County residents’ homes for free. The program is one of the first in Central Florida to provide at-home installations.


Door alarms will be installed on a first-come, first-served basis. This will be an ongoing program offered by Orange County Fire Rescue. To schedule a door alarm installation, visit www.OCFL.net/DoorAlarms.


Between 2019 to 2023, Orange County Fire Rescue responded to an average of 14 residential drownings each year, with the majority being pediatric patients. Drowning is the number one cause of accidental death in children ages one to four years old. Door alarms can act as a barrier and add a layer of protection, alerting a guardian when an entry way to a pool or body of water has been unexpectedly opened.
