Free batteries on Smoke Alarm Saturday

Firefighters from Fire District 1 will be going door-to-door in five neighborhoods this Saturday to install free smoke alarms and batteries. It’s part of a countywide Smoke Alarm Saturday campaign.

“We know smoke alarms save lives by providing the early warning you need to escape a fire. We want to spread the word and make sure everyone has access to this lifesaving technology,” said Deputy Chief Steve Sherman.

Firefighters will be installing free smoke alarms in two mobile home parks north of Lynnwood: Lake Stickney Mobile Home Park and Carriage Club Estates Mobile Home Park, and in neighborhoods near Edmonds Fire Station 16, Mountlake Terrace Fire Station 19 and Hilton Lake Fire Station 12 (east of Everett).

Crews will also be outside local grocery stores on Smoke Alarm Saturday to give away free batteries and to remind people to change their smoke alarm batteries as they change their clocks from Daylight Saving Time.  In Lynnwood, they’ll be at Safeway at 148th Street SW & Highway 99 and at Fred Meyer at 164th Street SW & Alderwood Mall Parkway. They’ll also be at Albertsons at 44th & 212th Street SW in Mountlake Terrace and at Top Foods at 220th Street SW & Highway 99 in Edmonds.

Firefighters say smoke alarms that are more than 10 years old should be replaced.
