GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Northeast Wisconsin Smoke Alarm Program is on a mission to install more than 2,000 free smoke alarms in homes that need them. 

A $36,790 FEMA grant is paying for the initiative.

Participating communities are Green Bay, Neenah, Grand Chute and Menasha. 

There is certain criteria; single family owned homes with seniors or families with kids under the age of five. Green Bay Fire Lt. Nick Craig says that group is the most at-risk of dying in a fire. 

The goal is to outfit 565 homes with ten-year lithium battery smoke alarms that won’t need to be replaced until 2022. 

Craig says if you fit the criteria and need a working smoke alarm, give them a call.
