Lewistown Fire Rescue encourages residents to install and maintain smoke alarms, supports national program

U.S. fire departments responded to over 1.3 million fires annually. These fires result in an average of 3,000 civilian fire fatalities, 16,500 civilian fire injuries and an estimated $12.4 billion in direct property loss. There was a civilian fire death every 3 hours and 4 minutes and a civilian fire injury every 32 minutes in 2012. Most of these injuries and deaths occur in homes without a working smoke alarm. To prevent these deaths, the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), a division of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is sponsoring a nationwide Install. Inspect. Protect. Campaign designed to raise awareness about how working, properly installed smoke alarms can lower a person’s chances of dying in a fire. Lewistown Fire/Rescue is supporting this critical effort to reduce injuries and the loss of life.
