First Line of Defense - Installing Smoke Alarms

This training was created to help you understand the need for community-based fire safety education and alarm installation. It aims to give you the tools to help your neighbors reduce the risk of being injured or dying in a house fire. The first line of defense is proper smoke alarm placement, installation, and having enough alarms in each home. This, combined with providing education and resources, along with fire sprinklers, will help make your community significantly safer.
