Pocomoke City, MD – The Worcester County Fire Marshal’s Office coordinated a smoke alarms delivery program with the Pocomoke Elementary School to ensure each student’s household could have up to two free smoke alarms, if needed, before the holiday break.

As we move into the holiday season, people spend more time at home, and furnaces, fireplaces, and other fuel-burning appliances are used more, making working smoke alarms all the more important.

Smoke alarms are only designed to last about ten years, if you think your smoke alarm is older than ten years, replacement is strongly recommended.

Fire Marshal Matthew Owens is pleased to share that 192 smoke alarms were sent home with Pocomoke Elementary School students.

We would like to remind residents that smoke alarms should be installed on every floor of the home and in every sleeping room and must be tested regularly to verify they are ready when you may need them.
