Smoke alarm campaign
Research conducted by Surrey Fire Services, in
partnership with University of Fraser Valley, shows almost 70 per cent of houses
that caught fire did not have a functioning smoke alarm. The Province helped
launch a new smoke alarm campaign on March 22, 2012 intended to ensure every
home in B.C. has a working smoke alarm.
The red light denotes it has been activated.
