On Wednesday, the State Fire Marshal’s Office will be distributing more than 20,000 fire alarms.
The alarms were purchased with grant money; and will be given to city and county fire departments.
Office staff will train recipients on installing the alarms as needed.
Mississippians can request free smoke alarms by contacting local or volunteer fire departments.
The giveaway will be held at 1:30 pm on McRaven Road in Jackson.
