1 2014 Office of the State Fire Marshal Smoke Alarm Installation Program Saving Lives of Kansans One Home At A Time 2014

2 GOAL To provide smoke alarms and their installation (free of charge) to Kansas homeowners. OSFM will support fire departments and volunteers across the state with the installation and education of ten- year sealed lithium battery powered smoke alarms. Regardless of income, race, or demographics we will work together to cover as much of the state as possible. RESTRICTIONS OSFM and its partners in the program cannot give away smoke alarms or hand them out. Many who receive them forget to install them, or take the batteries out for another use and forget to replace them. Fire Departments, organizations and volunteers who wish to participate will sign a waiver indicating the number of smoke detectors they have requested and ensuring us that they will be installed properly. Our office will document and track where the alarms are being placed and type of resident home for statistical purposes. Any one is eligible to receive an alarm at no cost; however, they must either have NO alarm present or NO working alarm. The recipient will have to provide the installer with an address and telephone of their home. The installer will then make arrangements to get the alarm installed. We are not able to replace an alarm for one that is already in working order. OSFM or participating Fire Departments will not supply the owners of rentals with our alarms. Under the Kansas statute, The Smoke Detector Act, the owner of a structure shall supply and install all required smoke detectors. Our alarms are not for homeowners to provide to their renters. They will need to get them from another source. OSFM or participating Fire Departments will not hand out any alarms. We will only make arrangements to install them in homes. You cannot have someone come to pick them up. You will need to schedule a time and date of when you can come to their residence to do the installation. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT Please know that we will do our best to supply you with as many alarms as possible. We have to cover as much of the state as we can with what we have available. We hope to target areas with residences that consist of children and the elderly since these are two categories most affected by fire related deaths. Rural and volunteer departments are encouraged to participate. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to help save the lives of Kansans. Page 2

3 Who can install the detectors? VOLUNTEERS, STAFF, CONCERNED CITIZENS, ETC. It will be left up to the department, organization, etc. who you choose to install the alarm. They do not have to be firefighters or electricians. They can be members of your local organizations, churches, clubs, or public safety figures. The installers must be willing to obtain the appropriate paperwork needed and represent the state and local organization in a professional manner. Installers will be responsible for providing fire safety education to residents so they will need to communicate effectively. You should make sure your installer is able to stand on a ladder, work a screwdriver, identify the correct alarm placement and be able to explain to the resident how the detector works and why. Also, discuss fire safety with the resident, especially if children and elderly live in the home. Fire Safety Education for residents include: How the smoke alarm works How to test and maintain alarm What to do if it sounds Have a fire escape plan Identify two exits How to practice drills Consider contacting your local: Schools Churches Service Clubs Health Departments Civic Organizations Follow the installation checklist provided Page 3

4 Installation Checklist Contact the resident and let them know when you will be arriving. Introduce yourself and explain why you are there. Provide release of liability form. Show the smoke alarm to the resident. Let them look at it and hold it. Identify the locations where they will be placed. Write the date of installation on the back of the detector. Install detector. Clean up any mess made, vacuum, sweep, etc. Explain and show how it works. Show how to test it. Discuss fire safety (escape plan, etc.) Verify local fire department information. Leave your name & phone number in case of questions or concerns. Return Installation & Liability form to Page 4

5 Installation Tool Kit The following is a list of tools that you will need to install the smoke detectors. Step ladder Flat-head & Phillips-head screwdrivers Drill Assortment of screws Permanent marker Paperwork Liability form Installation form In addition to these items, you should also: Have their local fire dept. contact information Provide resident with brochures and prevention info. Educate resident on smoke alarm being installed Office of the State Fire Marshal 800 SW Jackson, Suite 104 Topeka, Kansas Page 5

6 Frequently Asked Questions Q- I would like to hand out your detectors at a booth our department is attending, is this acceptable? A- No, any detectors that are requested from our office will need to be installed in the home of the requestor. Q- I have three smoke detectors in my home but only one of them works properly, can I get two more installed? A- No, OSFM is limited on the number of detectors we can purchase at this time, and even though we would like to provide residents with as many as possible we need to make sure that every home has at least one working smoke detector. Q- How many detectors can a Fire Department request? A- We will try and send you as many as you can install. If that is not possible, we will keep your information on file so that when other detectors become available we can provide you with more. This is an ongoing program. Q- Can the Fire Department request more detectors than needed to have on hand? A- Yes, as long as you are working in your community to see who needs them. If they are not installed within six months we may ask for you to give them to another department who has a need for them. Q- How will the detectors be delivered to us? A- In order to keep cost down, we will send them with one of our inspectors to you or send them by mail. Many of us in the office travel around the state and we will do our best to make sure they get to you in a timely manner. Q- I own an apartment complex, am I eligible to receive detectors for my tenants? A- No, as an owner under the Kansas Statute you must supply and install detectors for your tenants. Our program is only for home owners. Page 8
