This program is a free, in-home fire safety education and smoke alarm installation program that has been attributed to saving over 272 lives. Launched in November 2012, the program distributes fire safety education and 10-year sealed battery smoke alarms to participating fire departments. The fire departments then deliver the education and install smoke alarms in at-risk homes across the state.
