Smoke Detectors is important in the wake of fatal fire
Smoke detectors is no doubt quite important in our home safety. It may safe our life.
American Red Cross offers fire safety tips in the wake of fatal fire in 2022 FEB.16. In the wake of a fatal fire on Weiss Street Monday, American Red Cross leaders are reminding people of the importance of smoke detectors.
The fire broke out around 1:30 a.m. and claimed the lives of a 31-year-old mother, her 2-year-old daughter and two dogs. Buffalo fire officials said they found no smoke detectors in the home.
Leaders with the Red Cross said a smoke detector can be the difference between life and death.
"Just taking that couple seconds out of your day each month to press that button and make sure it’s working or click that button and reaching out to us can make all the difference," said Meg Rossman, American Red Cross regional communications director.
She said the non-profit recommends people make a two-minute escape plan that involves identifying two exits per room and establishing a safe meeting place outside.
According to FEMA, in 2019, more than 3,500 people died in home fires and 165 of them were from New York state. It is required by law in New York state that all homes have at least one smoke detector that can be heard in all bedrooms. The Red Cross recommends at least one smoke detector per floor.
In May, the organization is holding a nationwide event with programs in Buffalo and Rochester that will help people install free smoke alarms and teach people how to create an emergency plan for their home.
