Several organizations in the Brookings, SD area are teaming up to provide free smoke alarms to veterans and active military families. The Brookings Fire Department, Brookings County Office of Veterans Services, Brookings County Emergency Management, and the American Red Cross are offering free smoke alarm installations and information about preparing should a fire break out in the home.
Non-military households in need of smoke alarms can request free alarms through the Red Cross website, www.getasmokealarm.org.
