The Kelowna Fire Department is a part of the huge Smoke Alarm Campaign in March of every year. Today I would just like to remind you to check your smoke alarms to ensure they are functioning properly.
Research compiled by the University of the Fraser Valley revealed almost 70% of homes that caught fire in B.C. did not have a functioing smoke alarm. This reasearch prediced that working smoke alarms could reduce annual fire deaths in B.C. by as much as 32%.
