Gulfport Fire Department partners with Home Depot

The Gulfport Fire Department wants to keep you and your family safe.

After receiving a $25,000 grant from Home Depot, the Gulfport Fire Department’s fire prevention team is now providing fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, and escape ladders to communities in need.

By calling the Gulfport Fire Department, you can receive these fire safety installation services free of charge.

Since partnering with Home Depot, Gulfport Fire Chief Billy Kelley has seen an increase in fire safety inquiries. “We were able to put out numerous smoke detectors. In the past week, we put out smoke detectors in over 75 households which comes out to be about 225, 230 smoke detectors in each home.”

The Gulfport Fire Department’s next step is getting fire safety equipment into apartment complexes.
