Home Safety Inspections - Help Us to Help You

The Howard Fire Department has been awarded a "Safety - It's Worth the Energy" grant through the Wisconsin Public Service Foundation to provide Home Fire Safety Inspections to a target, at-risk audience in the Village of Howard. This inspection will include installation of smoke and carbon monoxide detectors where needed at no cost to the resident. If you would like, our firefighters will complete a home safety analysis at the same time and advise you of possible Fire or Fall hazards that are identified. Initially we are targeting homes that were built before 1992, or homes in which elderly adults reside. To schedule an appointment, please contact us at (920)434-4666.
