In September 2014, the Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) implemented a statewide residential smoke alarm installation program as a fire prevention effort. Get Alarmed Kansas allows trained volunteers to install smoke alarms in owner-occupied homes free of charge.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), working smoke alarms are the key to saving lives from fire.
Fire can grow and spread through a home in a matter of minutes. The advance warning provided by smoke alarms can be essential to saving lives.
Those interested in participating in our Smoke Alarm Program, please download and review the Smoke Alarm Program Handbook below.
Deaf or hard-of-hearing residents can submit their request directly to OSFM. These participants do not need to own their home to qualify.
