Maplewood Fire Department Offering Free Fire Prevention Services

By Chief Michael Mondor, Maplewood Fire Department

Want to get an expert’s opinion on your home’s level of fire protection?

One program is the Home Safety Survey MFD Firefighters will check your living areas for proper working smoke and CO alarms. Thanks to a partnership
with the Red Cross, residents can receive up to three smoke detectors, if needed. The goal of the program is to create an opportunity for firefighters to talk one-on-one with people about fire safety and provide on fire escape planning and safe cooking habits.

Surprisingly, many small fires go unreported. After taking this survey, participants are asked to report any fire that may be experienced in their home. Statistics gathered will be used to determine if any products or education provided during the survey were a factor in reducing any damage of the fire, or had increased resident’s safety in any way.

All Information obtained will allow the MN State Fire Marshal Division to enhance their understanding of what products may help reduce fires and fire related injuries. Surveys Are voluntary and any products you receive from the MN State Fire Marshal’s office or the Maplewood Fire
Department has been paid for by the FAIR Plan Grant.
