FBTX ~ Thanks to a generous donation of 250 smoke alarms, the Fire Department is once again "Out to Alarm Farmers Branch."

Representatives of Home Depot, attired in their trademark orange aprons, were on hand as boxes of smoke detectors were stacked in Council Chambers for the donation, accepted by Mayor Bob Phelps and the City Council.
All residents are encouraged to make sure their smoke alarms are in working order to have the early warning they need to escape a fire. Seniors and low-income homeowners may qualify for free smoke alarms, provided by the Farmers Branch Fire Department via this donation by Home Depot.

 Fire personnel will replace smoke alarms that are 10 years or older or aren't working.

 For more information on the program, contact Deputy Farmers Branch Fire Chief Tim Dedear at 972.919.2656.
