The Grand Rapids Fire Department is celebrating a major milestone today.

They have conducted 7,000 smoke detector home safety assessments throughout the city so far this year. The inspection was finished on June 30 in the Creston Neighborhood.

The program started back in 2013 and has since seen 43,000 smoke alarms installed in homes across the city.

The free home safety assessment program teaches the community about fire safety, and makes sure alarms are in homes and working properly.
