“Sorry We Missed You” Door Hangers Let Residents Know Firefighters Stopped By
Chelan Firefighters Canvas Neighborhoods for Home Safety Visits and Free Smoke Alarm Installations
As a part of Chelan Fire and Rescue’s smoke alarm installation and home safety program firefighters are canvassing neighborhoods inviting residents to participate. During their visits they will be providing life saving information and installing free smoke alarms where needed. In an effort to make as many people as possible, aware of this program firefighters will leave an informative door hanger at residence where no one was found to be at home at the time of their visit.
The ultimate goal of this program is to make sure local residents have the needed information to prevent fires in their homes and the protection which comes with having working smoke alarms. It is open to all residence of Chelan and was made possible through a grant from the Washington State Association of Fire Marshals. The program is part of a community-wide fire prevention effort designed to reach out to local residents, including seniors, families with young children and residents of neighborhoods, who are most vulnerable to fire deaths.
Anyone living in Chelan Fire and Rescue’s response area (Chelan, South Shore, Union Valley, Howard Flats, Chelan Falls) is encouraged to take advantage of this exciting life saving service being provided free of charge. If residents discover a door hanger at their home they are encouraged to simply call 509-682-4476 to schedule a home safety visit and firefighters will gladly come back to provide the home safety visit and install free smoke alarms where needed in the home.
Please contact the fire department at 509-682-4476 if you have questions or visit www.chelan7.com for more information on this program and ways you can keep your home and family safe from fire.
