Roswell offers free smoke alarms to needy families

The Roswell Fire Department is launching the 2018 edition of its “Operation Save-A-Life” fire safety awareness campaign by installing smoke alarms free of charge to families in Roswell.

The fire department is installing smoke alarms for residents in need. To request one, contact Lt. Ed Botts at or 770-594-6225, while supplies last.

Five thousand smoke alarms were donated to metro Atlanta fire departments by Channel 2 Action News, Kidde, Home Depot and attorney Ken Nugent for Operation Save-A-Life.

The campaign seeks to increase public awareness of fire safety and carbon monoxide poisoning, and the need for properly installed and maintained smoke alarms to prevent injuries and minimize property damage. Information:
