To really help this program reach its maximum potential, we need your help! First, check your OWN home to make sure that you have working detectors. Second, help check the homes of your family, friends, and neighbors for alarms. We especially want to target our most vulnerable citizens such as the elderly or disabled. If you are someone that provides a service for someone in their home for whatever reason (health care, plumbing, cable guy) ask them about their smoke alarms while you are there. Finally, if you find any homes that need smoke alarms and they are not able to afford them, or need assistance in any way, they can contact us or you can on their behalf.
If you or someone you know needs detectors, call the Fire Department at 620-336-2121. Let us know if you need actual alarms, or just help with existing alarms, batteries, or education on their use and placement. We are looking forward to expanding this program and thank you in advance for the roles you will play in making this a true city-wide effort!
