Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month!

The Valley Regional Fire Authority is joining forces with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) during Fire Prevention Week, October 5 – 11, to remind citizens about the importance of having working smoke alarms and testing them monthly. According to the latest NFPA research, working smoke alarms cut the chance of dying in a fire in half. Meanwhile, almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. The VRFA has a free smoke alarm and battery program for low income residents. The program is funded by the Auburn Area Fire Medic Campaign and a grant from the Energizer Battery Company. Stop by one of our fire stations or call 253-288-5800 to apply for assistance. For more information go to the family safety section of our website or contact the public education division at 253-288-5800.
