FEMA Helps Provide Smoke Alarms
On the heels of another fatal fire in Kingsport, the fire department has some good news that they hope will keep another tragedy from happening. FEMA will give 1,000 dual sensor smoke alarms with lithium batteries that last up to ten years to the Kingsport Fire Department from their Assistance to Firefighters Fire Prevention Grant. They will also be able to distribute 100 hearing impaired alarms to qualified residents. To find out more about the program, or to see if you qualify, contact the Kingsport Fire Department.
