Fire Safety Program

Protecting Our Families 

Did you know that the time you have to get to safety in case of a home fire is just 2 minutes? Are you prepared in case of a home fire? Take our Fire Safety Fast Check: 

  • Are there working smoke alarms on each floor of your home, inside bedrooms and outside of sleeping areas?

  • Are your smoke detectors regularly checked to make sure they are working every 30 days?

  • Do you have a fire escape plan for your family?

  • Do you practice your fire escape plan at least twice a year?

If you answered “no” to any of the above, RTNJ may be able to help.

Through the generous support of the Taub Foundation and the American Red Cross, RTNJ is able to provide 10-year lithium battery powered smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms at no cost to low-income senior households in Bergen and Passaic counties. Our experienced installers come out to your home, assess your fire safety needs, install the equipment, and help you create a fire escape plan for your family. Early warning from working smoke alarms plus a fire escape plan for your family could make all the difference. Click here to get the application.
