Buies Creek Fire & Rescue to Install Free Smoke Alarms for Residential Homes
RALEIGH — Fire Chief Justin Riewestahl of the Buies Creek Fire & Rescue would like to announce that the department has been awarded new smoke alarms from the North Carolina Department of Insurance Office of State Fire Marshal.
The fire department will be canvassing at risk communities to insure that homes have working smoke alarms. The goal is to insure that every level of the home has working smoke alarms and to replace smoke alarms that are more than 10 years old.
The alarms are being provided by the North Carolina Department of Insurance through a federal fire prevention grant that was awarded to the Office of State Fire Marshal. The goal of this program is to properly install long life, battery-powered smoke alarms in homes that do not have working alarms and to educate residence on the importance of smoke alarms and fire safety.
