Brunswick County Giving Away 1,000 Smoke Detectors
Brusnwick County is set to give away 1,000 smoke detectors this Saturday. In a move that is aimed to increase home safety and fire education awareness, the county will be installing these detectors throughout Brunswick.
“The goal of this event is to install 1,000 smoke alarms in at-risk homes throughout the county,” Brunswick County Fire Marshal Scott Garner said in a news release. “We want to ensure that every home has smoke alarms in it. We want to save lives by ensuring that residents can be quickly alerted of the need for escape if a fire occurs in their home.”
Volunteers will be canvassing the county with the new, free detectors and will also test existing alarms for residents’ safety. It is always important to make sure that your smoke detectors are properly located and functioning to ensure the safety of everyone who lives in your household.
