There's a new team of people helping in fire prevention at the Little Rock Fire Department.

Fire Corps volunteers were introduced at the "Save a Life Smoke Alarm Program" at the Central Station on Monday.

The Fire Corps is a national organization that uses volunteers to assist fire departments with non-emergency duties.

In this instance, Fire Corps volunteers will install free smoke and carbon monoxide alarms for people that live in Little Rock.

"There's no income tax taken out," jokes Fire Corps Volunteer Bill Toland. "You're doing something good for the community and that's the important thing."

The Fire Corps will also do a free home safety inspection with the installations.

Up to three smoke detectors and one carbon monoxide detector per household can be put up if needed.
