Burn Institute offers smokes alarms to seniors

The Burn Institute’s Senior Smoke Alarm Program provides senior citizens with free smoke alarms and installation. Fire service personnel from various fire departments throughout the county and other volunteer groups assist the Burn Institute year-round in installing the smoke alarms.

To qualify for this life-saving program, you must be 62 years or older, own your own home and not currently have a working smoke alarm. To sign up, call the Burn Institute at (858) 541-2277.
