COVID safety considerations

One of the most common coronavirus symptoms has reaffirmed the need for working smoke alarms in every home.

Each day USFA staff search the U.S. media to find home fire fatalities. Over the last several months we have seen many stories of people not being able to smell smoke in their home.  

On January 15,  a teenage girl, the only family member not suffering from coronavirus, smelled smoke and was able to get her family and pets out of the home safely.
