The Moores Mill Volunteer Fire Department (MMVFD) is offering residents a little help with an important home appliance, smoke detectors. The fire department said it is participating in the Alabama Fire College’s Get Alarmed, Alabama! Program and is offering both free smoke detectors and free installation for the detectors. The program is a partnership between InTouch LLC, the Fire College, and the Alabama State Fire Marshal’s Office. The smoke detectors themselves are provided by Vision 20/20. MMVFD Public Information Officer Ethan Fitzgerald said the detectors are a vital part of saving lives in case of a fire. “I believe it’s three in every five house fire-related deaths come down to houses that don’t have working smoke detectors,” he said. “To me, that tells you everything you need to know.”
