Contact the Everett Fire Marshal’s office about their free smoke detector program.

Given this morning’s fire at the Hawthorne Apartments (where they do have smoke and fire alarms) and a fatal residential fire earlier this month where there were no smoke alarms the Everett Fire Department is again reminding people in Everett that seniors, those with limited or low income and those who may be disabled can get a free smoke alarm and have it installed in a program run by the Everett Fire Marshal’s Office and the Red Cross of Snohomish County.

Here again is an update on the program from Everett Fire Marshal’s office…

“Tragically, most deadly fires happen at night, when people are sleeping,” said Fire Marshal LeRoy McNulty. “Smoke alarms are the most effective tool we have to alert people and give them the best chance of escaping the home.”

The Everett Fire Department, in cooperation with the American Red Cross of Snohomish County, will install smoke alarms for Everett residents at no charge. The program is targeted to low-income families, seniors and individuals with disabilities.

To learn more about the program or to request a smoke alarm, please contact the Fire Marshal’s office: 425-257-8100 or email FMO@everettwa.gov. For more information, visit www.everettwa.gov/smokealarms.
