Springwater Fire Wants Homeowners 'Alarmed for Life'
Posted on 09/14/2015

SPRINGWATER TOWNSHIP / September 14, 2015 – Springwater Firefighters will be going door-to-door to ensure homes are safe and have working smoke and CO detectors with the Alarmed for Life program.

During the week of September 21 to 25, Firefighters will be visiting homes and conducting smoke and CO detector tests with local homeowners.  These visits will focus on ensuring that the home has an adequate number of detectors, the detectors are properly placed, and a test will also be performed to ensure that the detectors are working properly.  The Firefighters will also answer any questions that the homeowner may have regarding maintenance of detectors or other fire safety related questions.

“Each year the Alarmed for Life program provides an excellent opportunity for our Firefighters to get out into the community and share the important message of fire safety,” says Jeff Corriveau, Fire Prevention Officer with Springwater Fire. “When the Alarmed for Life program was carried out in the spring of 2015, 11% of the homes were not in compliance. We would like to see that number reduced to 0% this time.”

Any Springwater Firefighter participating in the Alarmed for Life program will be wearing a uniform, carry proper identification and will arrive in a Springwater Fire vehicle.
