Puget Sound Energy and the American Red Cross want to keep families “Safe at Home.” Having enough smoke alarms is the first start.
On Saturday, June 11, we’ll be distributing free smoke alarms at select Lowe’s stores in Western Washington from 9 a.m. until noon as part of the Safe at Home campaign, while supplies last. Customers will be able to talk with safety experts from PSE and the American Red Cross to learn how they can better prepare for emergencies at home.
“Nearly anything can spark a fire, from a tipped over candle to a gas leak. We want people to get out of harm’s way as soon as possible, and a smoke alarm is one of the best, proven ways to alert us there’s a fire,” said Andy Wappler, a PSE vice president who’s helping lead the Safe at Home campaign.
The most common disaster in our country is a home fire. It’s estimated that seven people die every day from a residential fire. About 60 percent of house fire deaths occur in homes without a properly functioning smoke alarm. Preparation can save lives.
