Temple residents without smoke alarms can receive a free smoke alarm from Temple Rotary South members and the Temple Fire & Rescue Department Saturday.
The event will happen on October 15 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Rotary members will be wearing vests and working with firefighters to canvass neighborhoods and check for working smoke alarms. For families that don’t have working alarms, workers will install a new smoke alarm or replace batteries.
The teams will canvass the area of West Adams Avenue to West French to North 19th to North 23rd and West Avenue K to West Avenue M to South 7th to South 11th.
Temple Fire & Rescue will be giving families an information packet on home fire safety.
According to Temple Fire, families should test smoke alarms once a month and replace batteries at least once a year.
Families who live in Temple and need a smoke alarm are told to contact the Administration office at 254-298-5682.
