Smoke alarms installed in a South Lubbock, Texas, home are credited with saving the family inside when a fire damaged the home last week.

According to KAMC News, officials with the American Red Cross say that the home was one of about 160 residences visited by the Red Cross as part of an initiative to decrease fire-related deaths nationwide by 25 por ciento.

Family members say they were sleeping when the smoke alarms alerted them to get out.

The home was fitted with three smoke alarms a week and a half before the fire.

The Red Cross, partnering with the South Plains Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster, installed 314 smoke alarms in the Lubbock County area.

NFPA offers tools for fire departments and community organizations interested in initiating a smoke alarm campaign. Tips for installing and maintaining smoke alarms are provided in the document, “Planning and Implementing a Successful Smoke Alarm Installation Program.”

Adicionalmente, NFPA’s toolkit on smoke alarms includes everything needed to launch a smoke alarm awareness campaign.
