FIRE MARSHAL OFFICE WISH LIST

Your Support is Greatly Appreciated As We All Continue to Keep the Community Safe

 

 

1) New 9V batteries and smoke detectors are always welcome so that we can make sure as many households are as safe as possible from fire.

 

 

2) New Milford has a need for ADA compliant, visual and vibrating alert smoke detectors for hearing impaired persons, many of whom are on fixed incomes. These detectors cost $150 to $200 each and are vitally important to those with diminished hearing.

 

 

3) Donations are always welcomed to fund Fire Prevention Week activities held in October, including prizes, food, balloons, printing, and monetary contributions.

The New Milford Fire Marshal Office has decals available to alert the fire department that disabled persons live in the premises. Stickers may be picked up at the Fire Marshal's Office located at 10 Main St, 2nd floor of Town Hall between the hours of 8am and 4:30pm M-F.
