Fire Department Partners with American Red Cross to Install Smoke Detectors
The Siloam Springs Fire Department and the American Red Cross have recently partnered to provide working smoke detectors to the citizens of Siloam Springs. The program provides FREE smoke detectors and FREE installation of them to members of the community. "We are honored and excited to provide this new service to our community. Working smoke detectors are a key component to keeping people safe in their homes," states Fire Chief Jeremey Criner. For individuals who currently have smoke detectors, the Fire Department can check them for proper operation, as well as replace batteries if needed.
Statistics from the National Fire Protection Association show that nearly two-thirds of all home fire fatalities occurred in homes without properly working smoke detectors.
Any citizen of Siloam Springs who would like to take advantage of this program and have their smoke detectors checked, or new smoke detectors installed, are encouraged to contact the Fire Administration office at 479-524-3103 or via email at email@example.com.
