Smoke Detectors

Per the Minnesota State Fire Marshall, all smoke detectors and all carbon monoxide detectors should be replaced every 10 years!

The City of Kennedy is serviced by a highly trained volunteer fire department. The department is equipped with the current firefighting equipment and continues to upgrade as technology continues to advance. In addition to the fire department, Kennedy hosts an excellent first responder squad which consists of several community members. The first responder squad services the City of Kennedy and surrounding townships as well.

Fire Safety Tips

Preventing fires is an important part of fire safety. In the United States, cooking is the main cause of home fires. Cigarettes are a big risk too — as they are the leading cause of fire deaths. Here are some fire safety do's and don'ts:

  • Don't leave the stove or oven unattended when they are on.

  • Don't let children use kitchen appliances unsupervised.

  • Don't smoke in bed.

  • Make sure your smoke alarms work.

  • Have fire extinguishers on every floor and in your kitchen.

  • Have an escape plan.

  • Make sure your electrical appliances and cords are in good condition.

Thank You Firefighters!
