Mayor Thomas Broderick, Jr., and Fire Chief David Cravens are pleased to announce the Get Alarmed fire prevention program. In partnership with Hoosier Park Racing & Casino, Wal-Mart Super Center, The Herald Bulletin, and Lowes, the City of Anderson Get Alarmed program will provide smoke detectors free of charge to Anderson city residents. Smoke detectors save lives. The Get Alarmed program will enhance citizen safety, increase awareness of smoke alarm benefits, and assist the Anderson Fire Department to keep our community safe.
Anderson Fire Department personnel will deliver smoke detectors and/or replacement batteries for existing detectors. Smoke detectors ten years or older should be replaced. Batteries should be replaced two times per year for proper operation. Smoke detectors should be placed near sleeping quarters and on each level of a home.
To participate in the Get Alarmed program, citizens must complete and return a Smoke Alarm Request Form to the Anderson Fire Department (44 W 5th Street, Anderson, IN 46016). Request forms can be located at www.cityofanderson.com. For more questions contact the Anderson Fire Department at (765) 648-6624 or 648-6618, and by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
