ECFR Installing Free Smoke Detectors Saturday In Harvesters Homes

May 18, 2017

Escambia County Fire Rescue will be installing free smoke detectors Saturday during a neighborhood canvas in the Harvesters Homes subdivision off Muscogee Road in Cantonment. ECFR will be going door to door starting at 8 a.m., walking the neighborhood and offering to install the free smoke detectors.

Smoke detectors that are properly installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries. According to the National Fire Protection Association, a working smoke detector cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half. The Escambia County Board of County Commissioners and Escambia County Fire Rescue are continuing to work toward their goal of having a working smoke detector in every home in the county.

For more information, contact Escambia County Fire Rescue at (850) 475-5530 orĀ For information about obtaining a home smoke detector, call 850-595-HERO (4376).
