Get Alarmed, TN

The State Fire Marshal’s Office recently presented the La Vergne Fire Rescue Department with a supply of 10-year battery smoke alarms to be installed in homes within the community at high risk of fire. 

This statewide distribution of smoke alarms launched in November of 2012 and is part of the State Fire Marshal’s effort to both educate and equip Tennesseans to incorporate fire safety into their daily lives.

The alarms are free, but must be installed by the fire department or a partnering organization that has been trained by the fire department. Because supplies are limited, the fire department may need to give first preference to those who are not able to otherwise afford smoke alarms.
