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. We offer decorative but functional smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors that can be installed in or near the baby’s nursery.
In recent years the program has been greatly expanded. The union, in cooperation with the Massena Volunteer Fire Department, now provides smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors for any individual or family who cannot afford one. We work closely with school nurses and home health aides to determine residences that are in need of working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. If you already have smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in your home be sure to install fresh batteries at least twice a year. 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!
