October is Fire Prevention Month and a local insurance agent is helping the Tuscaloosa Fire and Rescue service save lives, one smoke detector at a time.

State Farm agent Amy Corbin presented a $1,000 donation to the fire department that will be used to purchase smoke detectors through the Get Alarmed Tuscaloosa program. The program installs smoke alarms in hopes of preventing fires in the community.

The Get Alarmed Tuscaloosa program began in 2006 and since then has installed over 3,000 smoke alarms. For those in need of a smoke alarm or inspection, call 311 to get connected with Get Alarmed and have one installed or inspected, free of charge.
