Las Cruces Fire Department Awarded Federal Grant for Smoke Alarm Installations

Smoke Alarm

The Las Cruces Fire Department has been awarded a federal Fire Prevention & Safety Grant through FEMA in the amount of $46,076 to provide smoke alarm installations and home fire safety education. The City of Las Cruces will provide a 5% required match of $2,303.81 for a total approved project budget of $48,380.00. These grant funds will be used through August of 2022 to install smoke alarms in high fire risk, impoverished communities, primarily in Las Cruces Fire Department Districts 1, 2, and 3.
 
As allowed by the grant terms, the Las Cruces Fire Department will manage the installation of smoke alarms in up to 180 homes within Las Cruces City limits where the residents are willing to receive on-site fire safety education during the installation.  Las Cruces firefighters will provide the installation and education, which will be focused toward impoverished homes in need of working smoke alarms as part of the grant award terms.

The Las Cruces Fire Department will begin to accept referrals on December 1 for residents in need of smoke detectors and who are willing to receive fire safety education in their home, provided by a LCFD firefighter.
 
These home visits and installations are expected to begin just after January 1.  If you or someone you know meet these criteria, residents may call the Las Cruces Fire Department at (575) 528-3473 to request this service.
