Smoke alarm installed the day before saves a man in house fire

A Clarksville, Tennessee, man learned first-hand the meaning behind this year’s Fire Prevention Week (FPW) theme: Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm.

According to WKRN-TV, Mardoche Olivie started cooking early Sunday morning, sat down on the couch, and fell asleep. He woke up to the sound of the smoke alarm and was able to escape the fire. The day before, firefighters and the American Red Cross had given him the smoke alarm. They came to his home as part of a campaign to install alarms in older home that didn’t have them.

“It was meant to save my life and that’s what it did,” said Olivie.

NFPA’s Smoke Alarm Central and FPW remind the public to install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of the home, including the basement. Larger homes may need additional alarms.
