Fire Marshal Distributes 300 Free Smoke Alarms

The State Fire Marshal's Office is giving out more than 300 smoke alarms.

Sixteen people have died in fires in MS so far in 2017. Chaney says in the past eight years, the number of those deaths has been reduced by almost 36 percent.

They are partnering with the Vision 20/20 project to distribute the smoke alarms to fire departments in Oktibbeha County and the cities of Brandon and Starkville. Acquiring the smoke alarms comes at no cost to the state because of its partnership with 20/20 Vision.

"Smoke alarms are the most effective tool we have to alert people and give them the best chance of escaping the home". Davis said he has reapplied for the grant this year. Those with existing smoke detectors had batteries checked and replaced, free-of-charge, if necessary.

"Home fires impact hundreds of families in our region every year, and working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in a fire in half", said Jane Gendron, executive director of the Red Cross North Country Chapter, in a public statement.

"A working smoke alarm will save your life", Davis said. "A smoke alarm, education, and having a fire plan in the house all play a part". Residents interested in a detector must call the station to participate in the give-away.
