The Public Education Coordinator for the Dumfries Triangle Volunteer Fire Department

October 5-11 is National Fire Prevention week.  In sticking with the theme of

“Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives”, we will be offering the Citizens of the

Town of Dumfries an opportunity to have their Smoke Detectors checked. On Monday,

Tuesday and Wednesday of Fire Prevention Week, We will take appointments to stop by if

any citizen needs their smoke detectors checked or batteries changed.  I will be ordering a

surplus of batteries and smoke detectors that we will have on hand if there are some that

need to be changed. The residents can send me an email to or

leave a message on my cell phone at 571-238-9567 and I will call them back to schedule.
