Twelve Area Fire Departments to Install Free Smoke Alarms


Broome County has been selected to participate in a smoke alarm installation program.
Firefighters from the Johnson City, Endwell, Deposit, West Colesville, Conklin, Five Mile Point, Union Center, Port Crane, Windsor, Chenango Forks, Sanitaria Springs, and Triangle Fire Departments will be accepting applications and conduct home visits to residents in selected communities to install free smoke alarms and provide fire safety education.
Funding for the program comes from FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
The Endicott Fire Department received an earlier grant from this same program.
They have provided fire safety education and installed smoke alarms in over 1000 households in the village over the past several months.
