Smoke alarms save lives. Smoke alarms that are property installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries. If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out.
Kennebunk Fire Rescue has partnered with the American Red Cross to offer free smoke alarms and installation to anyone in Kennebunk who cannot afford them. Please contact us if you need assistance obtaining, installing or inspecting a smoke alarm in your home.
