Smoke Detectors

The Whitestown Fire Department has long practiced a policy of sending crews to any residence to replace smoke detector batteries or assist with hard-to-reach detectors. Unfortunately, given the growth of our population and our increasing run volume, this is not a sustainable practice to maintain prompt emergency response.

If your detector is beeping for unknown reasons, always call 911 and report this to the dispatcher so a proper response can be started. If you know that the detector is in need of batteries but cannot reach it, we will arrange for a crew to assist if you are over the age of 65 or physically disabled. In all other cases, we recommend contacting an electrician or home handyman to assist with replacing batteries. Thank you for understanding.

If you are over 65 years old or disabled and do require assistance, feel free to contact us or call our administrative office for assistance.

Car Seat Inspections

The Whitestown Fire Department provides free car seat inspections to any resident in the Whitestown area. Recent research has shown that as many as 80% of car seats in use in Indiana today are either the wrong fit or not properly installed.

The department has trained technicians that are available to inspect and assist with installations upon appointment. Car seat inspections are also offered at community events throughout the year. Our goal is to keep every child as safe as possible.

Register for an inspection by completing this form.

Project Lifesaver

The Whitestown Fire Department is proud to be a member of the Boone County Project Lifesaver program. The primary mission of Project Lifesaver is to provide timely response to save lives and reduce potential injury for adults and children who wander due to Alzheimer’s, autism, and other related conditions or disorders.

The program equips individuals with a radio transmitter bracelet that is synchronized to the tracking equipment carried on WFD Engine 71. Through technology and trained individuals, the individual can be located much faster than with a traditional foot search.

For more information on the program or to request an application to equip a family member with the needed transmitter, please fill out this form.
