Smoke Alarm Installation and Education

Alarmed and Alert: The Minnesota Initiative to Prevent Residential Fire-Related Injuries partners local public health agencies and fire departments to install lithium-battery smoke alarms and to disseminate fire safety information in high risk communities. Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the program currently funds nine community programs, but additional grant opportunities may be offered in coming years.
