Free smoke alarms available


Lake Stevens Fire continues to offer FREE smoke alarm installations and Home Safety Surveys, while supplies last. These supplies were provided by the Vision 20/20 Grant for citizens who are in need of smoke alarms in their homes.

Through this grant Lake Stevens Fire is able to provide educational Home Safety Surveys, which consist of testing/installing smoke alarms, identifying potential fire hazards, and helping residents create an escape plan to prepare for an emergency situation. The installation and surveys are free to Lake Stevens’ residents and are conducted by a firefighter crew from Lake Stevens Fire.

You may benefit from this service if:

• Your smoke alarms are 10 years old and need replacing

• You still need smoke alarms in each sleeping area or on each level of your home

• You don’t have photoelectric smoke alarms

• You need assistance looking for fire hazard risks in your home

• You need a fire escape plan

Public Educator Jennye Cooper states, “Nationally, two-thirds of fire deaths contribute to homes without working smoke alarms. Lake Stevens Fire is working to help keep our community safe by offering free smoke alarm installations and education that can help keep your loved ones safe.”

If you are interested in having Lake Stevens Fire conduct an informational Home Safety Survey with smoke alarm installation, please call 425-334-3034 to set up an appointment.
