Corner Brook looking to install 2700 smoke alarms in homes built before 2000

    This program will include homes in the City and surrounding region of Western Newfoundland including the Bay of Islands, Humber Valley, and White Bay South areas.

    ‚ÄčThe city of Corner Brook is launching a new program to distribute 2700 battery operated smoke alarms to homeowner occupied homes built before the year 2000, but they can’t be rentals or apartments. This program will include homes in the City and surrounding region of Western Newfoundland including the Bay of Islands, Humber Valley, and White Bay South areas. Recognizing that not all homes have the proper number of smoke alarms, and that smoke alarms are a major part of fire protection, the CBFD will work with other local fire departments to educate the public, distribute and install these alarms thanks to an investment of $90,000 from the Department of Justice and Public Safety. An application form is available at www.cornerbrook.com/smokealarms. Once applications are processed and passed on to the respective fire departments of the region, firefighters will contact the homeowners to arrange an installation visit. Alarms could be installed as early as September 25th.
