If you are a resident within the City of Cornelia and/or surrounding area, you may qualify for a free smoke detector for your home. We ask for those who are in need inquire as our supplies are limited. Our goal is to have every home in the city with a working smoke detector on every level of the home. We also educate the public of basic fire safety and the importance of having a smoke detector.
How Smoke Detectors Work
In the event of a fire, a smoke alarm can save your life and those of your loved ones. They are a very important means of preventing house and apartment fire fatalities by providing an early warning signal so you and your family can escape. A properly installed and maintained smoke alarm is the only thing in your home that can alert you and your family to a fire 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Whether you're awake or asleep, a working smoke alarm is constantly on alert, scanning the air for fire and smoke.
