Fire Prevention and Safety Grant - Smoke Alarm Installation and Fire Education (SAIFE)

  • McCool, Robert (PI)

Grants and Contracts Details


The project goal is to install long life smoke alarms in homes that lack working smoke alarms, with an emphasis on homes occupied by low income and high risk populations. KIPRC will purchase long-life, lithium battery powered smoke alarms and educational materials produced by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Smoke alarms, educational materials, training, and technical support will be provided to local organizations that will install the smoke alarms in homes in their communities. The local agencies will publicize the project in their communities, recruit eligible households, install smoke alarms in those homes, provide fire safety education to the residents, and return installation data to KIPRC. KIPRC will use the data provided to measure the effectiveness of the program in installing alarms, to determine when local projects are in need of additional assistance, and to compile basic demographic information about the population served.
