D.C. to inspect fire alarms in homes
D.C. fire officials are planning to inspect smoke alarms at homes throughout the city.
The D.C. fire and EMS department says firefighters and officials from the U.S. Fire Administration will canvass neighborhoods Saturday in southeast and northeast Washington, close to the site where an 88-year-old man died in a February house fire. Crews will check and install smoke alarms at no charge.
City officials say the Federal Emergency Management Agency has provided a $125,000 grant to support the D.C. Smoke Alarm Verification and Utilization Program as well as to purchase 6,000 smoke alarms.
