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.
