NFPA announces the theme for Fire Prevention Week, October 4-10, 2015 “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep: Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm”

Every bedroom needs a working smoke alarm. If you didn’t know that, you’re not alone. An online questionnaire distributed by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) showed that less than half (42 percent) of approximately 36,000 respondents did not know that a smoke alarm should be installed in each bedroom of the home.
