The City of Racine Fire Department is making available to city residents free smoke detectors to help families stay safe.

Through a $54,848 grant from the Department of Homeland Security and The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), RFD will go door-to-door talking with residents in lower income neighborhoods about fire safety and offering to install a free smoke alarm.

The Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin Charitable Foundation (PFFWCF) is partnering with the Wisconsin Smoke Alarm Fire Education Committee and fire departments across Wisconsin to install 3,600 smoke alarms in homes in low-income areas.

“One of the greatest risk factors for fire related death is poverty. For this reason, priority was given to fire departments protecting the highest number of people living below the poverty level,” a press release from Racine fire Lt. Scott Sorce reads.

RFD has 180 smoke alarms ready to go. Residents who live in the City of Racine and do not have working smoke alarms should call the Racine Fire Department, Fire Prevention Bureau at (262) 635- 7915.
