Fayetteville Fire Department to Install Free Smoke Alarms for Residential Homes
RALEIGH — Fire Chief Ben Major of the Fayetteville Fire / Emergency Management Department would like to announce that the department has been awarded new smoke alarms from the North Carolina Department of Insurance Office of State Fire Marshal.
The fire department will be canvassing at-risk communities to insure that homes have working smoke alarms. The goal is to insure that every level of the home has working smoke alarms and to replace smoke alarms that are more than 10 years old.
The alarms are being provided by the North Carolina Department of Insurance through a federal fire prevention grant that was awarded to the Office of State Fire Marshal. The goal of this program is to properly install long life, battery-powered smoke alarms in homes that do not have working alarms to protect the lives of local citizens.
Upon scheduling, staff from the Fayetteville Fire / Emergency Management Department will go door-to-door to ask residents to allow firefighters into their homes to check their smoke alarms. If any smoke alarms need to be replaced, new alarms will be installed in the proper locations. If no one is home at the time of the visit, a notification tag will be left on the front door to notify the residents that the fire department has stopped by for a courtesy check of their smoke alarms.
For additional information about the smoke alarm installation program, go to www.bravethefire.com or call the Public Fire Educator at 433-1413.
