Home Fire Preparedness Campaign

Home Fire Preparedness Campaign


CARBONDALE – The Carbondale Fire Department and the American Red Cross are teaming up to put smoke alarms in Carbondale homes.

The goal of the Home Fire Campaign is to reduce the number of fire-related deaths and injuries, one home at a time.

Free smoke alarm installations and home fire preparedness education sessions will take place on Saturday, May 11 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. To sign up for a 20-minute home visit, visit or call (573) 335-9471, ext. 1310.

Each year, the Red Cross responds to an average of more than 62,000 disasters, the vast majority of which are home fires. Seven people die every day from a home fire, most impacting children and the elderly.

“Carbondale prides itself on providing its visitors, students, businesses and residents with a unique mix of edge and ease. It’s a cultural town, yet free of pretense, embracing the great outdoors as readily as urban sophistication. Here, we are open to new ideas, experiences and cultures, so you are encouraged to both express yourself and be yourself, in all ways. That’s Carbondale…All Ways Open… for family, fun, business, new ideas and a bright tomorrow.”
