Fire Department offers free smoke alarm installation

by | Aug 7, 2023 | News

The Hopkinton Fire Department, in collaboration with a generous grant awarded by FM Global, is offering free installation of smoke alarms to Hopkinton residents in need.

Per the National Fire Protection Association, “Smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries. If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out.”

The installation program targets those who are most vulnerable to fire deaths, including older adults, families with children, residents with disabilities, veterans and homes with no working smoke alarms. The goal is to ensure residents have the protection of a smoke alarm, but because they won’t prevent every death, HFD personnel also will perform a home safety inspection and educate residents on creating a home fire escape plan.

To take advantage of this community risk reduction opportunity, call the Fire Prevention Bureau at 508-497-2323, Ext. 4, to schedule a home safety inspection and evaluation of current alarms. Supply is limited, and alarms will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
