Thanks to grant funding, the City of Newton Fire Department is proud to offer free smoke alarms to its residents. The smoke alarms are available to eligible homeowners on a first-come, first served basis and can be installed by the City of Newton Fire Department.

One of the most important tools to help survive a fire in the home is a working smoke alarm. Since it's estimated that more than half of residential fire fatalities happen in homes where there is no smoke alarm, this program is more important than ever. Properly installed and maintained smoke alarms provide early warning of a fire and allow occupants precious time to escape a burning building. Having a working smoke alarm more than doubles your chances of surviving a fire. Take action today to keep your family safe.
