What A Successful First Year!!
Thanks to our firefighters and the
Red Cross volunteers for a great
first year. We were able to install
over 130 smoke detectors in homes.
All of the homes we were welcomed
into had the chance to discuss their
safety plans and ask any questions
they may have had about home safety.
We would like to thank all of those
who invited us into their homes and
allowed us to install new smoke
detectors. Keeping our community
safe is our top priority!
And The Program
Thanks to the Red Cross and their
partners, our smoke detector program
will continue. As long as we have
homes to put smoke detectors in,
they will continue to supply us with
them. At least through 2019.
Here's all you need to do. If you
live in our fire district and would
like free smoke detectors put in
your house, email
We will call you and schedule an
install date and time.
If you are not in our fire district,
you can still email us. We will
contact your Fire Department and
give them your information so you
can get your free detectors.
Smoke detectors are provided through
the Red Cross' Home Fire Prevention
Campaign and made available to our
community by partnering with our
Give a Beep program.

Give a Beep Fire Safety Program
We started our program in 2014. The
first two years we had a fire safety
day at Lynn Camp High School. We had
several utility companies, safety
trailers, Kentucky Crisis Team and
several other safety and volunteer
help organizations join us. We gave
away food and smoke detectors. We
talked to those who attended about
fire safety. The other companies
that joined us gave away different
things that had to do with safety.
Even though we gave away smoke
detectors, we had no way of knowing
if they were really installed and
being of use. So in 2016 we decided
to change our approach and put them
in ourselves. We were starting to
look for ways to buy the detectors
when along came the Red Cross. They
had detectors to give away and we
needed detectors to give away. So
the rocket scientist in us realized
if we worked together, we could both
achieve our goal. So the partnership
began. And we plan on continuing the
partnership as long as we can help
the community together. Follow the

Home Fire Campaign. While you are
there, make a mental note of the
partners that donate to make the
campaign possible and support them
when you can.
