Honolulu firefighters are reminding residents to test their smoke alarms to make sure they’re working. Interviewed recently by local television station KITV, Honolulu Fire Department Battalion Chief Terry Seelig stated that 70 to 80 percent of homes have smoke alarms, but of those, only 70 to 80 percent have ones that work.
Schools have joined in the public awareness effort and are creating murals to be displayed at fire stations throughout Oahu during Fire Prevention Week. More information on smoke alarms is available on NFPA’s smoke alarm page.
