NFPA Installing Free Smoke Alarms

Tchula, Miss.

A year after a deadly home fire killed six children in Holmes County, Miss., national organizations and local leaders are working together to prevent a similar tragedy.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) and the Mississippi High-Risk Fire Safety Task Force have joined together to provide and install nearly 9,000 smoke alarms in homes throughout the entire county, one of the most impoverished areas in the nation, as part of National Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 5-11).

“There is no question that working smoke alarms can save lives,” says NFPA President and CEO James M. Shannon. “By providing every home in the county with a working smoke alarm, this program will help to keep families safer.” It is expected to take six to nine months to install all 9,000 smoke alarms.
