DeFuniak Springs, FL… Firefighters in the City of DeFuniak Springs are distributing and installing free 10-year battery life smoke alarms to citizens within the city limits who call and ask for one. Fire officials say citizens can receive up to three for their residence and will install the alarms at no charge.
