Roughly two-thirds of home fire deaths happen in homes
with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms
When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. Having a smoke alarm, maintaining it, and knowing what to do when it goes off are key to getting outside quickly.
In addition to smoke alarm and/or battery installation, residents will work on escape planning and discuss local risks to the community.
