SIOUX FALLS - Sioux Falls Fire Rescue is giving away smoke alarms to people who cannot afford them.

A city ordinance requires smoke alarms in each sleeping room, the area in the immediate vicinity outside sleeping rooms, and at least one on each floor.

The department will also provide assistance to those people who need help installing the alarms.
