Install 5,000 Smoke Alarms in FY20
City of Memphis Fire Services has an ongoing program to reduce residential fire fatalities through the installation and maintenance of smoke alarms and fire prevention education in partnership with Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office (SFMO). This element measures the number of smoke alarms installed or replaced as well as batteries replaced or changed. In FY19, Fire Services was able to successfully install 5,030 smoke alarms, surpassing the goal of 5,000.
City of Memphis Fire Services is committed to saving lives and protecting property through prevention, and public education. The public outreach target is the number of people who participate in activities related to public education and community education events. 500,000 public contacts through public education and community outreach events is a metric based on national standards and population size.
