The City of Dover Fire and Rescue is partnering with the New Hampshire Fire Marshal to provide free smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors to the city’s most vulnerable populations. The program is possible through a FEMA Fire Prevention and Safety Grant.

The grant program, Get Alarmed New Hampshire, is a carbon monoxide and smoke alarm distribution, installation and education program. The program targets owner-occupied homes with children five years of age and under, adults 60 years of age and older, or people living with a hearing impairment or disability.

Carbon monoxide and smoke alarms save lives. On average, seven people die every day from a home fire. When a fire starts in a home, there may be as little as two minutes to escape. Carbon monoxide (CO) is the silent killer. It is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas. Alarms are your best defense to keep you and your family safe.
