'Be a Hero' Campaign Encourages Residential Fire Safety

A new survey revealed a majority of Americans do not have sufficient knowledge of residential fire safety.

A new survey has revealed that millions of homeowners in the U.S. lack basic fire safety knowledge. However, efforts from Kidde, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, and Help the Good Guys may greatly lower that number.

The "Be a Hero, Save a Hero" campaign will focus on fire safety, response to a fire crisis, and reducing the risk of fires in homes. According to the survey, 74 percent of homeowners could not accurately describe where smoke alarms should be placed in houses, and 43 percent did not know when to replace smoke alarms.

Those interested in taking the pledge to place smoke alarms in every room of their homes and in increasing their education on fire safety can visit the campaign's website. For each pledge, Kidde, a leading manufacturer of residential fire safety products, will donate $1 to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and Help the Good Guys.

Those making the pledge are also encouraged to replace all smoke detectors that are more than 10 years old.
