Fire Department Checking for Working Smoke Alarms and implementing the S.A.F.E. Family program
Firefighters from West St. Paul Fire Department will visit local neighborhoods to perform free smoke alarm inspections and installing smoke alarms as part of the S.A.F.E. Family program (Smoke Alarms for Every Family). Fire department representatives will be checking to ensure that residences have the required number of smoke alarms and that they are in working order. If residents require additional smoke alarms or have alarms that are not working, fire department personnel will install 10-year lithium battery smoke alarms at no cost.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the international non-profit leader in fire, electrical, building and life safety and official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week, working smoke alarms are the key to saving lives from fire. Smoke alarms are the most effective early warning device there is and a working smoke alarm in your home would increase your chance of survival by fifty per cent.
"Our goal is to make sure residents have the protection of a smoke alarm,” says the West St. Paul Fire Department. "Because smoke alarms alone won’t prevent every fire death. Our project includes educating residents to have a home fire escape plan so they know what to do if the smoke alarm sounds.”
During the S.A.F.E. Family program, local firefighters will fan out through the area, visiting residents in Rivercrest, Lister Rapids and Riverdale, residents who wish to schedule a home visit should call the municipality at 204-338-0306.
The S.A.F.E. Family program (Smoke Alarms for Every Family) is a province-wide initiative sponsored by Office of the Fire Commissioner, Red River Mutual, Firefighters Burn Fund and the Manitoba Association of Fire Chiefs. The overall goal of Manitoba’s S.A.F.E. Family program is to save lives by protecting every home with working smoke alarms and a practiced fire escape plan.
