     The free smoke alarm installation program has reached out to many homeowners here in town and between January 1, 2014 and January 7, 2015 the department has installed 468 alarms, replaced 191 batteries and visited 1,133 homes. The department will continue throughout 2015 with the door to door walking campaign verifying that St. Albans residences have working smoke alarms.  It is a known fact through data collection and research that smoke alarms save lives.  Working alarms greatly improve your chance of survival through early detection and notify residents so they can escape.
