If you receive a knock on your door soon, please don’t be alarmed. Aberdeen Firefighters will be canvassing neighborhoods in Aberdeen town limits to install free smoke alarms to older homes that may not have installed smoke detectors.
The Town of Aberdeen has announced the fire department is participating in the “Statewide Smoke Alarm Canvassing Day” on Saturday, June 23rd.
In a written statement, the town said, “Smoke alarms were not always required when a home was built, so if you live in an older home, you may get a visit from Aberdeen Firefighters to install smoke alarms.”
Not only are the smoke alarms free of charge, the installation is free as well.
You can always call the Aberdeen Fire Department at 910-944-7888 at anytime to have smoke alarms installed, changed out with new ones, or the batteries changed.
