JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Trees, ornaments, presents; they can all go up in smoke if you're not careful this time of year.

To help you be better prepared, the City of Jonesboro states smoke detectors are freely offered by the Jonesboro Fire Department. Grants acquired by the city allow them to provide the detectors at no cost to residents.

The smoke detectors must be installed by JFD firefighters and the service is only offered to those living within the Jonesboro city limits.

If you don't need a smoke detector but want one inspected, the JFD can perform that task as well.

To request a smoke detector or inspection, call 870-932-2428 and make an appointment.
