A member of Baltimore City Council joined dozens of firefighters recently in a neighborhood smoke alarm sweep.

According to WJZ-TV, City Councilman Warren Branch went door-to-door with fire officials to talk to residence about the importance of fire safety. This comes after seven fatal fires in the city this year.

At residents’ request firefighters will install smoke alarms inside of homes to help prevent such tragedies from happening.

NFPA’s Planning and Implementing a Successful Smoke Alarm Installation Program includes tips for conducting a smoke alarm canvassing and strategies for gaining the public’s interest in a smoke alarm installation program. In addition, Smoke Alarm Central is a complete source of smoke alarm information.
