There have been over 900 free smoke detectors installed by McMinnville firefighters like Jamie Brown in the four years the program has been offered.
McMinnville Fire Department has installed over 900 smoke detectors in the last four years.Back in March 2013, the department entered into a partnership with the State Fire Marshal’s Office as part of a statewide distribution of smoke alarms in an effort to both educate and equip Tennesseans to incorporate fire safety into their daily lives. The city was initially given 100 free smoke detectors with a promise from the office to provide more once the first 100 were installed. The program proved to be a popular one.
