Fire and Safety

Fire services across the country have played a major and influential public education role in alerting the public to the benefits of smoke alarms. The impact of smoke alarms on fire safety and protection is dramatic and can be simply stated “Smoke alarms save lives”. When fire breaks out, the smoke alarm functioning as an early warning system reduces the risk of dying by nearly 50 percent. Almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out. 2165578668
