North Metro Fire will provide a household smoke alarm and/or carbon monoxide alarm at no charge to senior citizens, residents of the District with limited income or residents with special needs. In addition, the District offers assistance with the installation of a smoke alarm for those who are unable to properly install it themselves.
The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) reports that three of every five home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. Furthermore, 23% of home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes in which smoke alarms were present but did not operate. The death rate per 100 reported fires was twice as high in homes without a working smoke alarm as it was in home fires with this protection.
Please contact 303-452-9910 to ask questions, request a smoke alarm or carbon monoxide alarm, or make an appointment to have your alarm installed.
