Columbus is challenged by neighborhood youth gangs, violent crime, and drug activity. The department builds coalitions to establish the trust needed to get smoke alarms installed where needed.


 

Lt. Sawyer says he has attended neighborhood civic association, block watch, and faith-based institution meetings in uniform to assure residents that the fire department is invested in the community. You can read more of his thoughts on keeping the community safe in Planning & Implementing a Successful Smoke Alarm Installation Program, which is available on the smoke alarm safety page on the NFPA website.
