This is a news release from Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department published verbatim.
It is not uncommon for our firefighters and paramedics to get asked a variety of questions about smoke alarms. Often, people want to know what type of smoke alarm you need and where in the home they should be placed. Our partners in safety at the National Fire Protection Association produced an informative, and short, video that answers these, and many other, questions.
Please take two minutes to increase your fire safety knowledge. Who knows, it could save your, or a loved ones, life one day.
