Get Alarmed with Free Smoke Alarms
The Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office and the Avoca Volunteer Fire Department is on a mission to prevent home fire deaths in Tennessee! Using grant funds awarded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Fire Marshall's Office launched its Get Alarmed program in November 2012. Through the program, smoke alarms are distributed to fire departments to be installed in at-risk homes across the state. While in the home, the installers explain key fire safety tips to residents and encourage them to create a home fire escape plan.
Since its inception, the Get Alarmed program has distributed over 75,000 smoke alarms to 410 Tennessee fire departments and community service organizations. An average of 157 homes receive smoke alarms each week as part of this program. Get Alarmed has been credited with saving the lives of 89 Tennesseans so far, demonstrating that working smoke alarms can and will save lives. The State Fire Marshal’s Office wants all Tennesseans to have these vital devices in their homes.
