This month we will learn: What firefighters want you to know!

Meet (retired) Captain John Feissner who is on Montgomery County Fire and Rescue’s Senior Outreach Team and learn about the many programs the department offers! We will be covering lots of topics including …

Is your home up-to-date with Smoke Alarms? There have been many recent changes to Maryland Law regarding the requirements for Smoke Alarms and new requirements in Montgomery County for Carbon Monoxide Alarms beginning in JULY 2019. Is your home affected by the changes? Are your alarms out-of-date/missing or maybe you just don’t have a clue? Do smoke alarms really expire? How do you know if they are expired? Would they save your family?

Learn about one of the BEST tools to protect your family from fast-moving fires.  Hint: It’s already in your home. Come find out what it is!

Does it seem like the number of fires is going up? Learn about trends, top fire risks and what YOU can do to be safe.

Have your smoke alarms kept up with technology? There’s a WHOLE lot of new technology to keep you safe --- are you tapping into it?

Learn about one of MCFRS’ most popular programs and how you can schedule a free home safety visit and check-up of your smoke alarms.

How does 911 work? What do I need to know? Why does a fire truck come when someone calls for a medical emergency?

Are you “aging in place” and wondering if there are any services from the fire department to help you?  There are! Learn how MCFRS is working with "villages” to help residents “age in place.”

Come attend and learn more, more, more!
