Did you know that if a fire starts in your home you may have as little as two minutes to escape? During a fire, early warning from a working smoke alarm plus a fire escape plan that has been practiced regularly can save lives. Learn what else to do to keep your loved ones safe! 


After speaking with our representative, if needed, you will be automatically put on our list to receive a FREE smoke alarm installation for your household.

*Safety is our top priority. We have postponed in-home visits during the COVID-19 pandemic in several counties and will resume FREE smoke alarm installations once it is safe to do so. Please note that all education will be conducted over the phone.
