Residential Smoke Alarm Installation and Consumer Fire Education Program Funded by FEMA Grant
Calumet Village Fire Department has joined the MI Prevention statewide fire safety campaign through the State Fire Marshal, the Bureau of Fire Services and Michigan’s fire safety organizations to reduce the high number of fire deaths, injuries and property loss in Michigan. In order to protect the health and safety of high-risk populations in Calumet Village and other targeted areas, the Calumet Fire Department is participating in MI Prevention by distributing smoke alarms for residential homes free of charge and educating consumers on safety practices.
The fire department received 45 smoke alarms to be distributed to Calumet Village Residences. If anyone in the community knows of a residence in need of a fire alarm for their home, please contact the village office or a Calumet Village firefighter. The Village currently has 43 remaining. The paperwork that needs to be filled out can be found below. If you or someone you know is in need of a fire alarm, please make an appointment to get one at the Village Hall.
