The theme for this Fire Prevention Week is “Cooking safety starts with YOU. Pay attention to fire prevention™”. The message aims to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe when cooking.

Need new fire alarms?
The Westerville Division of Fire is partnering with the American Red Cross to offer free smoke detectors and installation for Westerville and Blendon Township families. You call, they’ll install. If your in-home smoke detectors are more than 10 years old, they need to be replaced!
Call (614) 901-6600 to schedule your appointment and a Westerville Fire Division team member will visit your home to install your brand new smoke detector free of charge.
Schedule your smoke detector appointment, and ask for a free, in-home fire safety inspection. A WFD representative will assess your home for fire risks and make recommendations to help protect your home and family. Details here.
Not in Westerville?
If you live outside of those townships and you are in need of working smoke detectors or installation, please contact your local fire department to see if they have a program that can help.
