Mobile home park residents receive new smoke alarms

The Yakima Fire Department and the American Red Cross partnered for the Smoke Alarm Blitz campaign at a mobile home park.

Last month the fire department, along with the Red Cross, hosted an event with Broadmoor Mobile Home Park residents to teach them the importance of fire safety.

Yakima Fire Department Public Information Officer, Jeff Pfaff, said they are going through the list of residents who signed up to receive smoke alarms.

“Through Legends Casino we received a grant to purchase smoke alarms,” said Pfaff. “We’re also providing them with a home escape plan.”

From 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 17th, volunteers from the fire department and the Red Cross installed 50 smoke alarms in senior mobile homes.
