Smoke Alarm Installation Program

Get Alarmed free smoke alarm program logo
In 2014, the Office of the State Fire Marshal 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, 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.
