Firefighters Check Smoke Alarms, Provide Home Escape Plans

From the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department:

On Saturday, November 6, 2010, from 9 a.m. to noon, firefighters will canvas homes in selected neighborhoods throughout Fairfax County, checking for working smoke alarms, and providing family fire escape plans for residents.

The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department will partner with the U.S. Fire Administration in supporting the Install. Inspect. Protect. Campaign. The initiative emphasizes smoke alarms, escape plans, and home safety walk-through to eliminate fire hazards from homes.

A working smoke alarm can help you and your family to escape a deadly fire. It can also help save the lives of firefighters who would otherwise have to risk their lives by searching a burning home for residents. A working smoke alarm continuously scans the air for smoke, 24/7. It never sleeps.
