Smoke Detectors Save Lives

Posted

Smoke DetectorThe Orange Park Fire Department supplies and installs smoke detectors for residents that do not have one. Please contact the Fire Prevention Bureau at 278-2083 for more information.

A properly installed and maintained smoke alarm is the only thing in your home that can alert you and your family to a fire 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whether you’re awake or asleep, a working smoke alarm is constantly on alert, scanning the air for fire and smoke.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in properties without working smoke alarms. A working smoke alarm significantly increases your chances of surviving a deadly home fire.
