NFPA is a proud supporter of Operation Save A Life, a smoke alarm distribution project of ABC News, Home Depot and Kidde.
The majority of fire deaths in this country happen in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. Local fire department smoke alarm installation programs ensure more people will be safer and lives will be saved.
NFPA has materials available to support smoke alarm installation programs. Our Planning & Implementing a Successful Smoke Alarm Installation Program guide provides everything you need, from tips on how to select and train volunteers, to pointers on soliciting donations and publicizing your program. Safety tip sheets on smoke alarms (English and Spanish), and smoke alarms for people who are deaf or hard of hearing are ready for use in your community.
