Community Risk Reduction Division
The overall objective of the Community Risk Reduction Division is to ensure that the residents, local businesses, and those who visit the City of Sharonville are safe. This is accomplished through fire life safety inspections, plan reviews, safety systems testing, education, and training. We aim to build and maintain relationships with our citizens and local businesses.
The Sharonville Fire Department continues to offer FREE Interconnected Smoke Detectors and FREE smoke detector batteries to the residents of Sharonville. A traditional smoke detector is a single unit wired to an electric or battery powered to protect a specific sized area. Interconnected smoke detectors provide an earlier warning of fire because they link together. When one alarm sounds, all alarms sound. This provides more warning in more places and gives families more time to escape. The advantage: Time to safely get your family out of harm’s way. Manufacturers of smoke detectors recommend that you replace your smoke detectors every 10 years. And as always please check your smoke detectors once a month and change your batteries every 6 months.
The Sharonville Fire Department strives to ensure that every residence in Sharonville has a working smoke detector. The best way that this can happen is for you to check your detector, if it needs to be replaced or the battery is dead, please call the Fire Headquarters at (513) 563-0252 to schedule a time to have your detectors fixed. The smoke detectors, batteries and installation by firefighters is FREE to Sharonville Residents.

Knox Box System
Property and homeowners have the ability to store entrance keys, access cards, and floor plans in a high-security Knox-Box®. Key boxes are mounted near their building or home entrances.

With the Knox System, there is no waiting for a property owner to unlock the door in the middle of the night and no forcing of the door open, potentially causing damage, to gain entry. The Knox Rapid Entry System reduces response time, property damage, and the liability for lost keys.
