Smoke Alarm Installation Program
In September 2014, the Office of the State Fire Marshal implemented a statewide residential smoke alarm installation program as a fire prevention effort. “Saving the Lives of Kansans - One Home at a Time” allows trained volunteers to install smoke alarms in owner-occupied homes free of charge. Smoke alarms are available to fire departments at no charge - we just ask that you make personnel available to personally install them.

can we find you card


 "Can we find your house in an emergency?" cards

A home that can be quickly identified with a street address easily seen from the street can save valuable time as first responders arrive on the scene after an emergency call. These cards can be distributed at community events or in partnership with your local utility companies as bill-stuffers.

"Toys or Lighters?" Display Case

Many novelty/toy-like lighters look like animals, miniature cars, musical instruments, game pieces and other objects that attract children. Other lighters are look-alike miniatures of adult tools or instruments. For example: cell phones, hammers, paintbrushes, and felt-tip markers. These novelty lighters are dangerous in the hands of children unable to tell the difference between a toy and a lighter.

Our display case of novelty lighters is available for           educational programs in Kansas.
