Smoke Alarm Program

Of every 100 people in the United States 14 are children. Of every 100 people who die in fires in the United States 18 are children. Of every 100 children who die in fires in the United States 10 are killed because of children playing with fire. Of every 100 people who die in child-set fires in the United States 34 are children.

The City of Knoxville promotes public safety education through SafetyCity, where every 2nd-grade child is able to spend a full day learning traffic and personal safety from the Knoxville Police Department, and home and fire safety from the Knoxville fire Department. We stress the importance of matches as a tool not a toy. We promote to the homeowner the use of smoke detectors in every residential structure. The department has a program through its Fire Prevention Bureau that provides and installs free smoke detectors for the elderly, indigent and low-income families with small children.
