Home Safety Analysis
The Southington Fire Department is pleased to announce our new fire prevention program. The program is a two pronged approach at preventing home fires; home safety inspections and smoke/carbon monoxide alarm installation. This program is both free and voluntary. The on-duty fire crew will walk with you through your home and discuss common home fire hazards found. They will also install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors as needed. For more fire safety information or to schedule an appointment for a home visit please contact Fire Inspector Robert Hunt at Fire Headquarters at 860 621-3202 ext. 8140
Every three hours, someone in the U.S. dies in a home fire. If a fire breaks out, you only have minutes to escape. Is your family prepared? The Southington Fire Department reminds you to install working smoke alarms on each floor, in hallways, living areas and inside all bedrooms. The sooner you hear an alarm, the more time your family has to escape. Check alarms regularly, replace them if they are more than ten years old, and develop and practice an escape plan with your family.
This program is made possible from grants from the Vision 20/20 program, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Assistance to Firefighters, and donations from community organizations and town citizens.
