A third Project SAFE smoke alarm installation weekend has been scheduled for November 9, 2013. The Sparks Fire Department will have seven teams of fire safety educators and installers ready to install free 10-year battery-operated smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors between 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Any single-family residential home older than 1994 is eligible for this fire safety program. To schedule your home for free smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors, please call the Sparks Fire Department at 353-2266.
Residents will also receive valuable fire safety information and educational items, including a personalized home-safety checklist and evacuation plan.
“Your family is twice as likely to survive a fire if you have working smoke alarms, says Sparks fire marshal Bob King. It’s very important to have smoke alarms in every sleeping room, hallway, and on each level of your home. Smoke alarms, coupled with carbon monoxide detectors save lives.”
For further information, please contact Sparks fire marshal Bob King at 353-2261.
