NASHVILLE (AP) – The state fire marshal's office is giving away thousands of smoke alarms.

The office launched a three-day sweep of West Tennessee on Wednesday, giving away 2,000 alarms to fire departments across the region. The goal is to get fire departments and other organizations to install the free smoke alarms in households for the needy.

Thousands more giveaways are planned for different areas of the state.

The office will pass out smoke alarms in Middle Tennessee in the first week of March. East Tennessee fire departments will gather on Capitol Hill and receive alarms on March 8, Fire Safety Day at the State Capitol.

The state passes out as many as 8,000 free smoke alarms a year. The smoke alarms are paid for with grant money.
