Do You Need a Smoke Alarm? Raleigh Fire Can Help!

Raleigh Fire will host smoke alarm installation events in several communities

Working smoke alarms can cut the risk of death from home fires in half. The Raleigh Fire Department plans to organize six smoke alarm installation and home safety check events this summer, starting on June 1.

Smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries. Fire spreads fast — working smoke alarms give you early warning so you can get outside quickly.

The Raleigh Fire Department is continuing its partnership with the American Red Cross to install smoke alarms and to continue to raise awareness about the importance of working alarms.

The scheduled event dates and communities are:

  • June 1 – Worthdale Park
  • June 22 – Worthdale Park
  • July 13 – Star Mount
  • Aug. 10 – PT Alley
  • Aug. 24 – Six Forks North
  • Sept. 13 – Six Forks North

All events are scheduled to run from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. You don’t need to register. The Raleigh Fire Department plans to visit these communities about a week before their event dates to give residents a heads up.
