Firefighters and volunteers installed 56 smoke alarms and 20 fresh batteries as they canvassed the community on Saturday, Nov. 4.  Fire Marshal Beau Matlock says smoke alarms are the first line of defense when a fire breaks out in a home. “Make sure your alarms have fresh batteries. Also, if any alarms are 10 years old or older, replace them,” he says.

Chattanooga residents who can’t afford to purchase a smoke alarm can obtain one for free by calling the fire department at 423 643-5600 during business hours.
