Firefighters across Rutherford County will be knocking on doors this Saturday and installing smoke detectors for free.
State fire data shows that Tennessee saw a 24% increase in structure fires and a 74% increase in fire deaths during the months of November through February last year.
To commemorate the 100th smoke alarm canvass through the lifesaving "Get Alarmed, Tennessee!" program, the Tennessee State Fire Marshal's Office (SFMO) will coordinate volunteers from four agencies who will attempt to install 1,000 free smoke alarms in a day's time in Middle Tennessee communities on Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018.
The crews will be going door-to-door in various locations near the MTSU campus installing free smoke alarms and providing fire safety educational materials to residents.
If you would like the fire department to install a smoke alarm in your home for free this Saturday (Nov. 14, 2015), simply call the administration office at 615-893-1422.
