Home fires can spread rapidly, leaving occupants as little as two minutes to escape once an alarm sounds.
Fire Safety Volunteers: Join us on Saturday, October 3, to help install smoke alarms and educate seniors about fire safety basics. Skilled and non-skilled volunteers welcome; also drivers with a pickup or SUV.
Homeowners: If you are 60 or older, own your home, and meet low-income levels*, we can install smoke- and carbon monoxide alarms at no cost! Call 201-447-8886 or complete our Fire Safety Application. (*less than $46,100/yr for one-person household, $52,650 for two-person.)
Homeowners or renters who do not meet the above guidelines may still qualify to have 10-year lithium-battery smoke alarms installed free of charge where needed in their home or apartment. Call 201-447-8886.
We are accepting applications now through September 15 from low-income homeowners who need help keeping their homes safe and healthy. Critical repairs and home modifications are made without cost to the recipients of service, thanks to our generous sponsors, donors, and volunteers. To apply for assistance, click here.

"Volunteers have worked in our community to help rebuild our homes, our lives and our hearts. Volunteers have repaired more than walls and floors, they have helped us to maintain dignity. Volunteers of all ages come here without asking questions. They step into our houses and leave giving us back our homes!" - Regina C., Little Ferry homeowner and community volunteer
