This is part of a 10 year program called Get Alarmed Tuscaloosa, Which gives residents the chance to receive smoke alarm inspections and a replacement when needed free of charge.If houses lacked the device, fire officials would install one that lasts up to 10 years. This is all a part of fire prevention week. John Brook with Tuscaloosa Fire and Rescue said it’s important everyone has a working fire alarm.“Smoke alarms just increase your chance to get out of a house in time if you have a fire and it’s really important to us at Tuscaloosa Fire Services that everybody has a working smoke alarm,” said Brook.Tuscaloosa Fire Rescue started this blitz in Skyland Park earlier this year, and just finished up ensuring every house was covered.last_img
