Smoke detectors DO save lives! According to the National Fire Protection Association's 2018 report, almost three out of five home fire deaths were caused by fires in properties with no smoke alarms (41 percent) or smoke alarms that failed to operate (16 percent).
With a donation from Nestle Purina in 2021, KWFE is able to provide and install smoke alarms to all residents of the County at no cost, batteries included.
