It’s National Burn Awareness Week and local firefighters want to keep the community informed and safe.
Decatur firefighters are using this week to remind people to change the batteries in their smoke detectors. They also suggest putting smoke detectors in the main living area in your home and in each bedroom.
If you’re in need of a smoke detector, they are making it easier than ever to get one.
Lieutenant Stacy Rose with Decatur Fire & Rescue said, “We will come out and put a smoke detector up in your home free of charge, and just the only requirement is that we get a little bit of information from you so we can log where we put the smoke detectors.”
