The Lafayette Fire Department, in conjunction with Historic Five Points Museum and Tippecanoe County Fire Departments, will provide and install a free smoke alarm for ANY Tippecanoe County resident living in a single-family or two-family residence.
The departments will also install replacement batteries in existing smoke alarms at no charge.
Smoke alarms save lives by warning residents of a fire, allowing them time to escape safely.
It should be emphasized that not everyone will be eligible or meet the criteria for this service. Exclusionary examples from the benefits of the free smoke alarm program include: businesses, contractors and rental properties.
