Members of the Wilmington Fire Department, in Wilmington, North Carolina, went door-to-door last week, hoping to prevent fires like the one that took the life of 54-year-old Steven Worsham earlier in the week. According to the Associated Press, by the time fire crews arrived at the blaze, the home was collapsing and firefighters couldn’t get inside.

WWAY NewsChannel 3 reports that later, firefighters walked the neighborhood, installing smoke alarms in homes that needed them. En outre, residents have been encouraged to contact the fire department if they need a smoke alarm and can’t afford one. Firefighters will come out and install it.

Fire departments looking to raise awareness among residents or launch a smoke alarm installation program can download free tools from NFPA, including the guide: Planning and Implementing a Successful Smoke Alarm Installation Program, the Smoke Alarm Community Toolkit, and smoke alarm safety tips sheets in English and Spanish.
