Smoke Alarms, save lives. They can only protect you if they are properly installed and maintained. With very few exceptions, most fire fatalities occur in homes without a working smoke detector. It is truly the "cheapest form of life insurance you can buy." If you do not have a smoke alarm or the one you have is no longer working your local Fire Department will help. Most every city has a Fire Department and they want to make sure everyone is safe. They understand not everyone has the money to provide this safety but for them they are putting no price on it. That's right, just call your local Fire Department and request yours now or call the national 311 hotline to request. Your families safety is just a phone call away.
