Working smoke alarms save lives.

3 of every 5 home fire deaths resulted from fires where there was no smoke alarm installed or no working alarm in the home. Having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half.

 

As National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reports death rates are much higher in fires in which a smoke alarm is present but did not operate, than in home fires with no smoke alarms at all.

Community Smoke Alarm Walks

The smoke alarm installation program began in 2006 to assist in preventing home fire deaths or burn injuries to children and adults. This program exists to ensure that burn survivors and community members living in older homes or in high risk areas have at least one working smoke alarm in their home.

 

The Foundation supports and coordinates several installation events each year where volunteers and fire fighters install smoke alarms in high risk households throughout communities in Arizona. For more information contact: programs@azburn.org. You may also sign up to volunteer for a smoke alarm walk by clicking the image below.
