Lawrence Fire Department steps up smoke alarm blitz efforts

October 25, 2018

The Lawrence Fire Department has partnered with Koorsen Fire and Security for a smoke alarm blitz. Koorsen donated 400 smoke alarms to LFD to help keep Lawrence citizens safe. With this donation, firefighters are making home visits to install the life-saving devices.

 

Studies have shown that the odds of a home catching fire are 1 in 4. LFD Chief Dino Batalis said, “Checking batteries and verifying that fire alarms are functional are extremely important and can save lives. With this smoke alarm blitz we are helping residents do just that and a fire safety checklist will be given to every residence we visit.”

 

If you have an old smoke alarm that you would like to have checked or replaced, please contact LFD. Batalis said LFD will continue this program while supplies last. He said requests should be made to 317-542-4551.

 

This program is available to City of Lawrence residents only, Batalis said.
