Arlington Residents/Smoke Alarm Giveaway Program

July 18, 2011 in Uncategorized

 

At the Arlington Commission on Aging meeting today, I learned Arlington residents in need can receive two smoke alarms and a carbon monoxide detector through the Smoke Alarm Giveaway Program.

The fire department will come out and install two smoke alarms and a carbon monoxide detector in your home. These are hard wired audible smoke alarms. They can also provide battery operated smoke alarms with strobe lights but there is a limited supply. While the firemen are in your home, they can provide a home safety check looking for frayed electrical cords, etc.
 
To see if you qualify for the program, contact the fire department at 703-228-4646 (TTY 703-228-4610) or complete their  on-line form at:  http://www.arlingtonva.us/Departments/fire/forms/FreeSmokeAlarms.aspx.
