Earlier this year the North St. Paul Fire Department rolled out the SafeHaven program providing and installing smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms and StoveTop Fire Stops for North St. Paul residents. SafeHaven is a free program offered by the North St. Paul Fire Department and the American Red Cross. 

All owner occupied dwellings within North St. Paul are eligible to receive free smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms and StoveTop Fire Stops. In addition to providing and installing these products, a home safety inspection is conducted to give guidance on ways to increase safety in the home and provide guidance on home evacuation plans, test and, if necessary, replace smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms, and give some general fire safety tips. 

To date, there have been over 100 participating homes. The installation and inspection, if necessary, takes approximately 45-60 minutes and is scheduled at the homeowner’s convenience. More information can be found online at www.northstpaul.org/safehaven or by calling 651-747-2405.
