Why Did We Become a Sponsor
This family’s story is a tragic reminder that home fires can happen to anyone. In fact, according to the National Fire Protection Association, a candle fire in the home is reported to a U.S. fire department every 40 minutes. As the most trusted brand name in home safety, First Alert is committed to educating the public about the dangers of fire and CO poisoning. Becoming involved as a sponsor has not only allowed us to help this one family, but also educate even more people about the importance of properly installing and maintaining smoke alarms.
We are providing all of the smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms for the home. A number of the smoke and CO alarms are from our new line of affordable innovations that blend safety and style. These alarms offer style-centric customers maximum protection but with less-obtrusive, more streamlined designs to blend with home décor. The National Fire Protection Associate recommends that smoke alarms be installed on every level of the home and inside every bedroom, and also recommends that CO alarms be installed on every level of the home (including the basement) and near each sleeping area. Recently, California law required all single-family homes, as well as multi-family dwellings, to have CO alarms installed. In addition, we are also donating a security camera system for the home.
