Simple Changes that Could Save Your Life
An average of 3 children a day - approximately 1,100 children under the age of 15 - die each year in house fires. Approximately 90% of fire deaths involving children occur in homes without smoke detectors. Smoke detectors are relatively inexpensive. The Faribault Fire Department recommends that you install smoke detectors on every level of your home, including 1 in every bedroom and 1 outside sleeping areas.
