Smoke alarms save lives

From page A6 | October 16, 2013 |

“Smoke alarms save lives. It is your first line of defense in a structure fire, especially since most home fires start in the middle of the night when you are sleeping,” said Cal Fire’s Amador-El Dorado Unit Chief Kelly Keenan, who added, “according to the National Fire Protection Association, every 82 seconds a fire department somewhere in this country responds to a home fire. For as little as $8 you can buy a smoke alarm and sleep soundly knowing your family is protected. Annually about 3,000 people die in house fires and about two-thirds of these victims did not have a smoke alarm or their smoke alarm was not working.”
