Harriman Fire Department is giving out smoke alarms out to interested residents, thanks to a recent grant.
The department was able to secure the grants via the Tennessee Fire Marshal Office’s distribution of federal money, said Harriman Fire Chief Brad Goss.
“Our goal is to install working fire alarms in as many residences inside the city as possible,” Goss said.
The dual-sensor alarms detect fast-flaming and smoldering fires.
“Our supply of alarms had been exhausted since the last drive that Tina Adkisson, a Harriman resident, had organized in honor of her son and grandson,” Goss said. Both died in a fire.
Goss said what Adkisson did was really special and enabled many in the community to receive a free alarm.
The main requirements to receive an alarm is that recipients must be homeowners in the city and that fire department personnel must install the alarms.
