SFMO, Volunteers Set Oct. 8 for Cumberland Co. Smoke Alarm Canvass
State Fire Marshal's Office Wednesday October 5, 2016

The Tennessee State Fire Marshals Office (SFMO) will join volunteers from the American Red Cross of Northeast Tennessee, the Crossville Fire Department, the Cumberland County Fire Department, and the Fairfield Glade Fire Department to install free smoke alarms in homes on Saturday, Oct. 8, 2016 throughout Cumberland County.

Working in conjunction with local residents, organizers hope to reach at least 2,000 homes in Cumberland County during the one-day event, making it potentially the largest smoke-alarm canvass in the programs history.

The event is part of the SFMOs Get Alarmed, Tennessee! program which aims to prevent fire deaths in Tennessees high-risk areas through the provision of smoke alarms and fire prevention education.

Since the Get Alarmed programs inception in 2012, the SFMO and Tennessee fire service partners have distributed over 122,000 smoke alarms statewide. Smoke alarms installed through the program are credited with saving 147 Tennesseans from fire danger so far and helped lower Tennessees fire fatality rate to a new all-time low in 2015.

Who: The State Fire Marshals Office, American Red Cross of Northeast Tennessee, Crossville Fire Department, Cumberland County Fire Department, and Fairfield Glade Fire Department.

What: Get Alarmed, Tennessee smoke alarm installation event. Volunteers are asked to dress in neat, but comfortable fashion. Get Alarmed Volunteer orange emergency vests will be used for identification purposes.

When: 8:30 a.m. 3:30 p.m. (CST) Saturday, October 8, 2016.

Where: Volunteers will meet at the Crossville Fire Department, Main Station at 141 Henry Street, Crossville, TN 38555.

Contact: If you live in Cumberland County and need a smoke alarm, please utilize the SFMOs online alarm request form. If you are interested in volunteering at the canvass event, contact Community Risk Reduction Educator Alex Daugherty at 615-574-0240.
