Bill Anders, of the Kingsport Firefighters Association Local 2270 said, “The funds from our two concerts we host during the year provides smoke alarms, helps Operation Warmth to supply coats for area school children, and funds to present the burn foundation and other community projects.
“These new smoke alarms will help the KFD protect the citizens inside the city who need to replace the smoke alarms in their homes.” stated Barry Brickey, KFD Public Education Officer, “The KFD would like to thank the Kingsport Firefighters Association for their generosity and support to safeguard the citizens of Kingsport.”
Smoke alarms save lives. Other than a Home Fire Sprinkler System, Smoke alarms are you best defense in a home fire. 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.
Here's what you need to know!
• A closed door may slow the spread of smoke, heat and fire. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of the home.
• Smoke alarms should be interconnected. When one sounds, they all sound.
• Large homes may need extra smoke alarms.
• Test your smoke alarms at least once a month. Press the test button to be sure the alarm is working.
• Today’s smoke alarms will be more technologically advanced to respond to a multitude of fire conditions, yet mitigate false alarms.
• When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside.
• Replace all smoke alarms in your home every 10 years.
• More about installation and maintenance of home smoke alarms
Kingsport residents needing a smoke alarm may come to Fire Station 1, 130 ISland St to request an alarm
