Albany -- People in Albany who can not afford to buy smoke alarms for their homes, will be able to get one free from the Albany Fire Department.

State insurance commissioner John Oxendine presented 108 smoke detectors to Albany Fire Chief James Arrowood, as part of Operation Safe Home. The smoke alarms are all donated, to save lives. Over 112 thousand have been provided to Georgians since 1995.

Oxendine said "You simply call the fire department. If you are on a fixed income or simply can not afford to buy a smoke alarm, we will give you one. Because this will save lives. This is what you need."

People who can not afford a smoke alarm can pick one up at the Fire Department headquarters on North Jackson Street. And if needed, firefighters will install the smoke alarm for you.
