Nearly 4,000 Americans die every year in residential fires. Smoke alarms can provide your family with a crucial early warning time to get out of the house quickly before toxic fumes accumulate to lethal levels. A working smoke alarm can double your chance of surviving a fire in the home.
Free Smoke Alarms
It is the vision of the Columbia Fire Department that every home and every citizen be protected by at least one smoke alarm. We seek to implement this vision through our FREE SMOKE ALARM program which offers a smoke alarm to any resident of Columbia who is in need. The only prerequisites are that the citizen resides in a privately-owned home and have a genuine need for our assistance.
To participate in this program please call our main office at (573) 874-7391.
