Chattanooga, TN – According to the statement, CFD’s Fire Prevention Bureau, Fire Investigations, Community Outreach, and command staff were actively engaged in Alton Park today.

The teams went door-to-door, distributing fire alarms and speaking with residents about essential fire safety measures.

This initiative was driven by the recent occurrence of dangerous and damaging fires in homes lacking working smoke alarms.

The department emphasized the critical role of smoke alarms in protecting lives, highlighting that they provide the vital time needed for residents to escape safely in the event of a fire.

Residents were reminded of the importance of ensuring their homes are equipped with functioning smoke alarms to safeguard their families.

The Chattanooga Fire Department continues to prioritize community safety through proactive outreach and education efforts.
