On Saturday, March 9, from 9 a.m. to noon, firefighters will canvas homes in selected neighborhoods throughout Fairfax County, checking for working smoke alarms, and provide family fire escape plans for residents.
The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department partners with the U.S. Fire Administration in supporting the Install. Inspect. Protect. Campaign. The initiative emphasizes "Smoke Alarms Save Lives."
The smoke alarms that will be provided were made available by a grant from the Virginia Department of Fire Programs to Fairfax County as recipients of the "Get Alarmed" program.
