Firefighters will canvas homes in selected neighborhoods throughout Fairfax County Saturday from 9 a.m. – noon. They’ll be checking for working smoke alarms, and providing family fire escape plans for residents.
The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department will partner with the U.S. Fire Administration in supporting the Install. Inspect. Protect. Campaign. The initiative emphasizes smoke alarms, escape plans, and home safety walk-throughs to eliminate fire hazards from homes.
More than 3,000 people die in home fires each year in the United States; most of whom are in homes without a working smoke alarm.
