The Ford County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) has partnered with the American Red Cross to offer free smoke alarms to residents in Gibson City. As part of the Red Cross Sound the Alarm program, the initiative aims to improve fire safety and reduce the risk of fire-related incidents.
EMA officials are encouraging individuals to sign up for appointments to have the free smoke alarms installed in their homes. The program is available to all residents, regardless of income or age, and is particularly aimed at those who may not have a working smoke alarm in their homes.
Interested parties can contact Ford County EMA Manager Terry Whitebird at 217-781-1898 or email@example.com for sign-up information. The installation of the smoke alarms will take place on April 11th, and appointments are required.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, three out of five fire-related deaths occur in homes without working smoke alarms. Installing smoke alarms can save lives, providing an early warning system in the event of a fire.
By offering free smoke alarms to residents, the Ford County EMA and American Red Cross are taking important steps to improve fire safety in the community. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to protect your home and loved ones – sign up for a free smoke alarm installation appointment today.
