Free fire extinguishers and smoke alarms will be given to families with young children in October. It’s a partnership between the Springfield Fire Department and Parents as Teachers. The families were identified through in-home surveys done by PAT educators.
Cara Erwin, Fire and Life Safety educator with the fire department, says 250 fire extinguishers will be given out along with $2500 in smoke alarms.
She’s confident the free fire safety devices will save lives.
