Free smoke alarms for those in need

Did you know the Fayetteville Fire Department will distribute free smoke alarms for those in need?

Having a working smoke detector can save you and your family’s lives. The warning system gives you time to get out safely if there is a fire.

There are other things that can be done to ensure getting out of your house in the event of a fire:

  • Plan and practicing a home fire escape drill
    • Know two ways out of every room
    • Can doors and windows open easily?
    • Have a meeting place outside
  • Always stay in the kitchen when food is cooking
  • If using a woodstove or fireplace, have it inspected annually
  • Don’t leave candles burning unattended
  • Maintain at least (3) feet clearance around and above portable space heaters
  • Don’t overload extension cords and electrical outlets

Residents in need of smoke alarms can contact the Fayetteville Fire Department @ 479-422-6131 to receive a smoke alarm.

Fayetteville Fire Marshal’s Office can assist you in making and maintaining a fire safe environment in your home with our Home Safety Evaluation Program.
