Fire department surpasses goal in smoke alarm installations

título

Por Lisa Braxton

Lynn Fire Department headquarters in Lynn, Massachusetts, will be the site of an awards ceremony next week featuring the mayor, the state fire marshal, and nine students being honored for their creativity in promoting fire safety awareness. Students participated in a “Poster to Billboard” contest, drawing pictures fitting in with this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme: “Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month!"

The ceremony will cap off a year-long campaign and created multilingual television shows on the local cable station to talk about the importance of cooking safety, space heaters, and proper disposal of cigarettes. Community outreach partnerships were formed and fire prevention presentations were conducted.

The fire department collected more than 1,200 old smoke alarms, as shown in the photo, and replaced them and installed additional alarms in homes.
