The department says smoke alarms that are properly installed helps to play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries, in addition to giving individuals enough time to escape in case of fire. Statistics say smoke alarms are not present in nearly 40% of fire deaths according to the National Fire Protection Association.
