The S.A.F.E. Home Smoke Detector and Carbon Monoxide Detector Program is a program started by the Massena Permanent Fire Fighters a number of years ago. The acronym S.A.F.E. Home stands for “Smoke Alarms For Every Home”. The concept of the initial program was to provide smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors for every newborn baby at Massena Memorial Hospital.
In recent years the program has been greatly expanded. The Massena Permanent Fire Fighters, in cooperation with the Massena Volunteer Fire Department, now provide smoke detectors for any individual over the Age of 65, and Individuals or families who cannot afford one. If you need smoke detectors for your home or know someone who does contact us at (315) 769-2380. Not only will we provide you with needed smoke detectors, we will install them for you.
If you already have smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in your home be sure to install fresh batteries at least twice a year. When changing batteries check the date of the detectors, all detectors should be replaced every 10 years. The best times to remember to change out your batteries, is at the begging and end of Daylight Savings Time.
The basic premise of this program to make our community a safer place to live and to give back to the community that supports us. The "S.A.F.E Home" program is self supported by donations from local businesses and donations from the public. If you would like to help us by making a donation, please feel free to contact us!
