FEATURED THIS WEEK

Making our City Safer!

Following the Green Crest Fire last December, where 8 people were injured and 2 children were killed in a mobile home fire (with no smoke alarms), one of the goals of the Fire Department has been to ensure that homes have smoke alarms. Especially mobile homes where the elderly and families reside. Using 100% donated smoke detectors and volunteer labor (including our FD Senior Volunteers), our Fire Prevention staff has coordinated three events at local mobile home parks where anyone can have free smoke detectors installed in their home. The Fire Department partnered with the Burn Institute, the Red Cross, and the staff at Rincon Water District to accomplish this project.

So far the project has touched 387 mobile homes:

  • 854 smoke alarms installed
  • 104 carbon monoxide alarms installed
  • 17 replaced batteries in existing smoke alarms

There are over 3,400 mobile homes in Escondido, the progress and the momentum in making our community safer is encouraging! We have nearly exhausted the first batch of 1,000 donated smoke alarms we received earlier this year and we have requested more. There is another event scheduled in November.
